Varuna Residential Fellowships for Writers & Illustrators 2016

Applications open on 16 June 2015 and close 30 July 2015

Varuna, the National Writers House invites writers and illustrators from across Australia to apply for a Varuna Residential Fellowship.


A Varuna Residential Fellowship offers writers and illustrators, working across a wide range of literary genres and forms, focused work time, an inspiring environment and a collegial atmosphere in which to develop a new work.
The Fellowship includes full board and accommodation including private writing studio at Varuna, the National Writers House in the world heritage Blue Mountains region of NSW.
Varuna assesses applications on merit and encourages writers from diverse backgrounds and at all stages of their career development to apply.
Varuna is offering thirty Residency Fellowships in 2015 with residencies available between January and end of June 2016.
The quiet was the most crucial thing and the windows and the bookshelves, and the access to local walks. Dinners were wonderful! An excellent system of self-serve during the day and fantastic home cooked shared meal at night.
