KSP Writers’ Centre Residency Program 2020

The KSP Writers’ Centre in the beautiful Perth Hills region of Western Australia is calling for Australian and international writers to apply to its 2020 residency program. The residencies include a two-week block to develop a manuscript at the inspiring KSP property, which is the former home of notable Australian author, Katharine Susannah Prichard.

In addition to the salary and space to write, writers receive a welcome platter to share with co-resident writers, transport assistance while in Perth, breakfast supplies, networking opportunities, promotion, CV credit, complimentary writing group sessions and access to a thriving literary community, library services, access to mentoring, social events, and heritage walking trails.

As part of the residency, writers are asked to contribute to the KSP community by presenting a workshop on a topic of their specialty, and perform readings at a literary dinner hosted in their honour.

Positions available for 2020:

  • Established: Deadline 30 June 2019 – salary $2,000 AUS
  • Emerging: Deadline 28 July 2019 – salary $1,000 AUS & Scholarship – no salary
  • Next Gen: Deadline 25 August 2019 – salary $500 AUS
