Since 2007, Writers Victoria has offered writers the use of a Glenfern writers’ studio for a period of three months, thanks to the support of the Readings Foundation (from 2007 to 2014) and the Grace Marion Wilson Trust (since 2009).
The Fellowships give authors the time and space to write, as well as the opportunity to be involved in a vibrant community of writers in the historic surroundings of the Glenfern mansion in St Kilda East.
The Glenfern Fellowships have created a significant legacy for Melbourne’s literary scene and created a long and prestigious list of Glenfern alumni.
This year's applications were judged by Jennifer Down and Peter Hill. Writers Victoria welcomes the 2017 Glenfern Fellows:
- Marta Skrabacz
- Susan Paterson
- Andy Butler
May they have a creative and productive residency.
