The All Write Early Career Fellowships will be awarded to five writers from diverse backgrounds who have completed a manuscript of fiction or non-fiction*. Generously funded by an anonymous donor, the fellowships are designed to give writers who are early in their career a boost throughout the manuscript assessment process.

Successful applicants will receive a full manuscript assessment, an additional round of edits on their manuscript, manuscript reader feedback, access to workshops and an optional desk at Centre for Stories, a weekend retreat in Margaret River** and the opportunity to have their work reviewed by Fremantle Press via the Centre for Stories submissions portal.
