Massey University, in conjunction with Palmerston North City Council and Square Edge Community Arts Palmerston North, invites applications to join the School of English and Media Studies as Visiting Writer for a 12-week period from late March, 2021.
The Visiting Writer will receive a salary of NZ$10,000 and rent-free use of a downtown flat. They will have the opportunity to set aside much of this time for their own writing. The successful candidate will offer one public reading in our 'Off the Page' series, give at least one lecture for creative writing students and be available for office hours, as well as organise one or more community-oriented events (such as workshops or readings) that make a significant contribution to community arts.
Applicants are assessed on the community project they have in mind for their residency, the strength of their writing sample, and their reputation and reach within Aotearoa New Zealand's writing community.
