Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship

The Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship awards $10,000 to a successful applicant. The next recipient of the fellowship will be announced in March 2014.

The Fellowship is open to Australian writers of biography, however the selection criteria also extends to include a writer who is working on an aspect of cultural or social history that is compatible with Hazel’s interest areas (see hazelrowley.com).

The 2013 Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship was awarded to Stephany Steggall who is writing a biography of Thomas Keneally, Booker Prize winner for Schindler’s Ark. The previous winner, Mary Hoban, worked on a biography of Julia Arnold (nee Sorell, 1826-1888).

The Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship is supported by the Hazel Rowley Literary Fund; a sub-fund of Australian Communities Foundation.
