Round 6 of The Neilma Sidney Literary Travel Fund, which was previously open for applications, has now been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Neilma Sidney Myer Travel Fund recognises the unique value of travel in the development of new writing and literary careers.
In partnership with the Myer Foundation, the travel fund is intended to support emerging, midcareer and established Australian writers and literary sector workers. This includes writers, editors, agents, publishers, librarians, booksellers, employees and associates of literary organisations and journals, and other literary professionals currently living in Australia.
Applicants can apply for grants between $2,000 and $10,000.
It is anticipated that the rescheduled Round 6 will open in August 2020, with a closing date in September 2020.
Proposed travel projects will take place between 1 November 2020 and 31 May 2021 (dates inclusive). More information will be available via Writers Victoria in due course.
