Inner City Residency

Inner City Residency is a writer-in-residence program funded by the City of Perth. It will support eight local writers to undertake a residency at the Centre for Stories, Alex Hotel, or another local cafe, for a total of 12 days over a six to eight-week period. This project aims to support local writers to develop their craft and produce new work, and to make writers visible to the general public.

Writers will receive a $400 stipend for their participation, as well as support from Centre for Stories staff. There will also be the possibility of publishing and editorial opportunities.

Applications for Inner City Residency are currently open and will close on 28 June 2020. All writers are welcome to apply, however priority will be given to emerging writers who identify as CaLD, Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander, living with disability, LGBTQIA+ or from migrant, asylum seeker or refugee backgrounds.

Project guidelines can be downloaded here, and application form here. Please get in touch with any questions or concerns at: info@centreforstories.com
