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.
