Open to emerging Western Australian writers who identify as First Nations and/or Person of Colour, the writing fellowships provide each writer a $10,000 stipend to work on a manuscript over a 12-month period. The writing fellowships also offer a desk space at Centre for Stories, editorial support, mentoring support, profiling, and professional networking opportunities.
The writing fellowships contribute to the Centre for Stories Writing Change, Writing Inclusion program, which has already involved 12 long-term mentorships and over 15 hot desk fellowships.
