Varuna will soon be accepting applications for our 2017 Residential Focus Weeks.


A Varuna Focus Week offers a residential masterclass to writers with a shared interest in a particular area. Each week is limited to only five participants and includes a creative and stimulating mix of individual work time, facilitated sessions, one on one mentorship, as well as social time for unstructured conversation.


Focus Weeks are led by some of Australia's best cultural facilitators including Vanessa Kirkpatrick (Poetry), Tegan Bennett Daylight (Short Story), Claire Corbett (Novel), Patti Miller (Advanced Memoir) and Siobhan McHugh (Creative Audio). Each Focus Week Facilitator will lead a unique and stimulating residential masterclass that promotes writing, conversation and creative engagement.
