Advanced Memoir: Master Class at Varuna

Have you got a story just waiting to be told?

Join acclaimed memoirist Patti Miller for a week at Varuna, the National Writers’ House in the Blue Mountains, NSW. Limited to five places only, your residency will include a one-on-one consultation with a Varuna consultant, as well as three small group tutorials with Patti Miller. Most importantly, you will have private writing time in the comfort of your own writing studio.

Writers interested in participating need to submit an online Expression of Interest (EOI) to Varuna. The EOI application form asks you to state what you would most like to gain from the Residential Masterclass and to upload a half page synopsis and a writing sample of up to five pages that are indicative of your most recent and relevant work.

The fee for the residency is $1950 including accommodation, workshops and meals. A discounted rate of $1650 is available to all financial Varuna Alumni. Participants will need to have their own copy of Patti Miller’s Writing True Stories. If you have a Healthcare card, you may be eligible for the Varuna Travel Assistance Fund for a subsidy of up to $300.

There is no application fee for this program.

Applications close 9 September 2019.

Residency dates: Monday 18 November to Sunday 24 November 2019.
