"Not only did the grant buy me time, but it was also an encouraging recognition that my project was worth pursuing and that my work was considered to have value."- Giovanna Fenster, a 2019 recipient

In 2019

Giovanna Fenster

was one of the grant recipients for her project ‘Be Reasonable’. She would encourage anyone with a project they believe in to apply.

She says,

"the award of the CLNZ/NZSA grant was a real fillip for my project and a boost for my writing career. Research-reliant projects are time-consuming and, without financial assistance, it can be difficult to find concentrated research time. Only once I was awarded the grant did I really come to appreciate how highly regarded it is amongst New Zealand writers and publishers. I am grateful for both the financial assistance and the professional profile afforded me by CLNZ and NZSA."

Writers of all fiction and non-fiction genres are invited to apply for the CLNZ/NZSA Research Grants. In 2020, as in previous years, priority will be given to projects of national or significant local interest and/or those that add significantly to the field or genre on a subject.

Online applications open Friday 8 May and close at 4pm Friday 5 June 2020.

The recipients of the CLNZ/NZSA Research Grants 2020 will be announced in July or August.
