Writers Victoria invites writers with disability from throughout Victoria to apply for a 2019 Write-ability Fellowship.
“This project has boosted my confidence, energised me creatively, and brought a lot of joy into my life,” says 2017 fellow Jess Walton.
Now in its seventh year, our Write-ability Fellowships support emerging writers with disability with tailored professional development support such as manuscript assessments, curated programs of workshops, and/or mentoring.
The deadline for applications is Monday 10 June 2019.
How to apply:
To be eligible for a Fellowship, applicants must identify as an emerging writer with disability (though you do not need to disclose the nature of your disability) and be a resident of Victoria. WV staff or Committee of Management members are not eligible to apply.
