The Writers Victoria Fund aims to increase opportunities for writers who experience financial and social barriers to developing their writing skills and connecting with the writing and publishing community.
Donations to the Fund help provide free or heavily subsidised professional development opportunities for emerging writers throughout the state of Victoria experiencing difficulties arising from financial hardship.
The Fund was launched in June 2018 (under the name “Disadvantaged Writers Fund”), and has so far provided bursaries for workshop attendances, subsidised mentoring opportunities, and contributed towards proofreading.
