Hot Desk fellows start

Monday, February 11, 2013

As of today, the Wheeler Centre Hot Desks are home to writers keen for a space to call their own. With the help of The Readings Foundation, Hot Deskers receive a $1000 stipend, a workspace for two months and support from the Wheeler Centre resident organisations.

From nearly 200 applications, the list was whittled down to just ten writers, six of whom are Writers Victoria members. A big congratulations to members Penelope Chai, Kirsty Murray, Wahibe Moussa, Dominic Gordon, Pepi Ronalds and Meleesha Bardolia, who’ll be working on film scripts, plays, YA novels, novellas and non-fiction pieces.

We’re looking forward to having them here and to reading their projects when it’s time for them to go home.
