Young writer in residence
A four week residency (7th September - 4th October) in the Robert Lord Writers Cottage (Dunedin) to write, and participate in the NZ Young Writers Festival (3-6 October).
The residency is open to New Zealand writers aged 18-35. The writer will present an event within the 2019 NZYWF, which may be work/work in progress developed during the residency.
While we are open to any form of literary based activity, this year we are especially interested in receiving applications from playwrights or people who will benefit from attending the UNESCO Short Play Festival, which is being presented in Dunedin between 12-20 September.
NZ Travel costs to and from Dunedin, power, internet, and a writer's stipend are provided in addition to the accommodation.
Dunedin is a UNESCO City of Literature and has a warm and welcoming community that supports writers and writing.
The residency has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Robert Lord Cottage Trust, and Creative New Zealand.
