The Red Room Poetry Fellowship was established to foster the poetic and professional development of contemporary Australian poets and to recognise their achievements and artistic goals. 2024 sees Red Room Poetry expand their fellowship program in partnership with Varuna the National Writers’ House, located in Katoomba on Dharug and Gundungurra Country in the Blue Mountains.
The Red Room Poetry Fellowship residency will take place from Monday 26 August to Monday 2 September 2024.
This opportunity encourages poets to undertake an intensive period of creative development that includes a residency at Varuna, dedicated one-on-one mentorship and a poetic commission to be published as part of the national Poetry Month in August. All five poets will be in residence simultaneously, establishing a community of practice and encouraging new poetic connections.
Applications close Wednesday 7 February 2024 5pm (AEDT).
