black&write Fellowships

Wednesday, January 31, 2018 (All day)

If you are a deadly creative writer it’s time to get pen to paper or fingertips to keyboard!

Because black&write! is now accepting applications for the 2018 Writing Fellowship Program.

We invite all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander authors to enter State Library of Queensland’s national black&write! writing competition with your novel, short story collection, poetry collection or children’s book manuscript.

Two winners will each receive:

  • $10,000 prize money
  • Manuscript development with black&write!’s editors at SLQ
  • Publishing opportunity with Hachette Australia

Published and unpublished Indigenous writers – this is your chance to be a part of a growing community of writers, illustrators and editors.
