Writing NSW Access for Regional Writers Grants

Writing NSW Access for Regional Writers Grants are awarded by the NSW Writers’ Centre to help writers in regional NSW access professional development. Regional writers in any genre may apply for a travel grant of $300 to help them participate in an approved professional development event such as a workshop or seminar designed to further their writing or career skills.

Thanks to the generosity of one of our members, we are able to offer one additional $300 travel grant to help an Indigenous writer from regional NSW access professional development.

 

We would like to congratulate the following recipients of the 2016 Writing NSW Access for Regional Writers Grants: Alexandra Grantham (Lismore), Samantha Unwin (Tamworth), Kate Morell (Wagga Wagga), Joanne Wilson-Ridley (Queanbeyan), Rebecca Chaney (Gosford), Stephanie Hoskin (Burringbar), Frances Foley (Narrandera), Sally Hopkins (Dubbo), Kaneana May (Old Bar), Sam Paine (Mudgee) and Vera Rusca (Wherrol Flat). They have each been awarded a travel grant of $300 to assist with access to professional development activities to further their careers as writers.
