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

black&write! Writing Fellowships

Each year black&write! offers two Fellowships for unpublished manuscripts by Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander writers.

The winning Fellows work closely with black&write! editors to develop their manuscripts for publication.

Manuscripts can be fiction, poetry, short stories, children’s or young adult. 

There is no entry fee.

Prizes: The authors of the two winning manuscripts receive Fellowships, which include: $10,000 prize money; manuscript development with black&write! and a publication opportunity with Hachette Australia. Highly commended writers and entrants each receive feedback on their work from the black&write! editing team. 

Fellowship recipients will be expected to work co-operatively with the black&write! editors through to the completion of their manuscripts.

The manuscripts are developed with the black&write! editing team and have the opportunity to be published by Hachette Australia, black&write!’s publishing partner.

Closing date: Friday 28 February 2020.
