We're between the lines, helping our writing industry thrive

Copyright Agency Author Fellowship

The Copyright Agency’s Author Fellowship will support an established Australian author to create a new work for publication or performance and is open to novelists, playwrights, poets, children’s and young adult writers, picture book illustrators and journalists.

The Fellowship will provide sustained support for a year to one Australian author to create a significant new work. Applicants should submit a compelling and detailed description of their project accompanied by a writing sample to demonstrate their literary merit.

As the Fellowship is intended to support one writer, joint applications are not eligible.

To be eligible to apply, the author must have a publishing contract or a letter of intent to publish from an Australian-based publisher. (This should not be a letter of support.) This Fellowship will not replace any advance offered under the usual terms of a publishing contract.

Amount of grant: $80,000.

Projects must start after 1 October 2020.

Non-fiction writers should apply for the Copyright Agency’s Fellowship for Non-Fiction Writing.

Applications close Monday 29 June 2020.

Find out more about eligibility and how to apply on the Copyright Council’s website.
