KSP Residency Program: Emerging and Invited Categories

The KSP Writers’ Centre is proud to support the development of literary work by hosting a number of annual residencies for writers.

Emerging Category

In 2021, there will be two positions available in the Emerging category.

This residency will take place for a period of between two and four weeks duration, with a salary of $1,000.

Applicants in the Emerging category will have published at least one but no more than two full works, or have published a substantial amount of minor work in the print, visual or broadcast media and are working towards achieving their first major full-length publication.

Whilst in residence at KSP, writers in this category are expected to progress a current project as well as contribute to the KSP community by:

  • delivering a three hour workshop;
  • presenting a short talk, reading and writing exercise at an appropriate KSP writing group or event; and
  • completing an artistic report, statistical report, and publication report.

Invited Category

The Selection Panel may offer a non-salaried Invited Writer scholarship, of one to two weeks duration, to a well-deserving short-listed applicant in the Emerging Category, if they happen to be unsuccessful for an Emerging Writer position.

If offered this position, the applicant can focus solely on the progression of their manuscript and will have no other service delivery requirements. They will be required to submit an artistic report, statistical report, and publication report.

Closing date: Sunday 26 July 2020.
