NSW Writers’ Centre Varuna Fellowship

The NSW Writers’ Centre Varuna Fellowship is an annual prize for a writer who has a manuscript, play or suite of poems that is ready for the next stage of development. The writer must be a NSWWC member who is willing to commit to developing their work.
One NSW Writers’ Centre member will be awarded a one-week writing residency at Varuna the Writers’ House in 2016, including accommodation for seven nights and all meals. Two runners up will receive a book pack from HarperCollins and the opportunity to submit their manuscript to HarperCollins publisher Catherine Milne.

Entries for the prize are open until 11 September 2015. Entry forms can be downloaded here.

Judges of the 2015 NSW Writers’ Centre Varuna Fellowship will be HarperCollins publisher Catherine Milne, writer Luke Carman and NSW Writers’ Centre Executive Director Jane McCredie.

Previous NSW Writers’ Centre Varuna Fellowship winners include Jacqui Dent, Mark Brandi, Helen Thurloe, Greg Woodland, Lucie Stevens and Alison Thompson.
