Round 5 of The Neilma Sidney Literary Travel Fund will open for applications on 20 September.

Applicants can apply for grants between $2,000 and $10,000, for travel that takes place between 31 December 2019 and 31 December 2020.

The fund recognises the unique value of travel in the development of new writing and literary careers. In partnership with the Myer Foundation, the travel fund is intended to support emerging, midcareer and established Australian writers and literary sector workers. This includes writers, editors, agents, publishers, librarians, booksellers, employees and associates of literary organisations and journals, and other literary professionals currently living in Australia.

The travel fund was launched in 2017 and was named in honour of poet, novelist and short story writer Neilma Gantner (1922-2015).
