Inclusion Matters is a new fellowship and mentoring project at the Centre for Stories for emerging writers funded by the Copyright Agency and the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. There are two streams – Mentoring and the Centre for Stories Hot Desk Fellowships. Both are open for writers that wish to improve their craft, to work in a supportive community, and who have projects that would benefit from feedback. Both programs are designed for people living in Western Australia who identify as culturally and linguistically diverse.
While the Mentoring Program and round one of the Hot Desk Fellowships have commenced for 2019, we will be opening up for submissions for the second round of Hot Desk applications on 12 August 2019. See details below on how to submit an application. Good luck!
Centre for Stories Hot Desk Fellowships – Round Two
The Centre for Stories Hot Desk Fellows will be supported by Centre for Stories staff over a ten-week period. They will receive a stipend of $1000, have the opportunity to attend events and workshops, be profiled on the Centre’s website, have your work shared at Centre for Stories events, attend networking events and interact with other writers. You will be able to work in our space to complete an earlier project, or, to build on your previous writing abilities.
To be eligible for this, you must have completed an earlier mentoring project with the Centre for Stories, or, have a body of writing behind you in the form of previous publications or completed drafts. To apply for this, you are required to submit a short story (or stories) of at least 3000 words, 14 poems, or 15 A4 pages of writing. Please include a 200 word biography, and a 300 word statement on what you wish to achieve through this project.
