This Fellowship is an exceptional opportunity for an emerging Australian author to develop a new work of creative writing. You will draw on the special collections of The University of Queensland’s Fryer Library utilising rich primary sources as inspiration for your novel, play, collection of short stories, book of poems, narrative non-fiction, creative non-fiction, biographical work, novella or associated creative work.
Aspiring Australian authors (not commercially published in print) are encouraged to apply.
To be eligible for the award, you must be an Australian citizen or permanent resident; must not have commercially published a full-length, single-authored print publication in any genre; and demonstrate the relevance of your creative writing project to primary source materials held in the Fryer Library.
