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.

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.
