Young Writer in Residence

By The Big Idea | Posted: Monday July 13, 2020

A four week residency (13 September to Friday 9 October) in the Robert Lord Writers Cottage (Dunedin) to write, and participate in the NZ Young Writers Festival (24-27 September).

The residency is open to New Zealand writers aged 18-35. The writer will present an event within the 2020 NZYWF, which may be work/work in progress developed during the residency.

NZ travel costs to and from Dunedin, power, internet, and a stipend are provided in addition to the accommodation.

Dunedin is a UNESCO City of Literature and has a warm and welcoming community that supports writers and writing. 2020 will be the sixth NZYWF which is produced by the Dunedin Fringe Arts Trust who also produce the annual Dunedin Fringe Festival.

The residency has been made possible thanks to the generous support of the Robert Lord Cottage Trust, and Creative New Zealand.
