Applications for the Writing NSW Access for Regional Writers Grants are now open.
Applications are open from 4 June to 17 June 2018 (for projects taking place between 1 July and 31 December 2018)
The grants are awarded by Writing NSW to help writers in regional NSW access professional development. Regional writers in any genre may apply for a travel grant of $300 to help them participate in a professional development event at an approved not-for-profit organisation. Professional development events can include workshops or seminars designed to further their writing or career skills.
Past grant recipients included writers from areas such as Lismore, Tamworth, Wagga Wagga, Mudgee and Dubbo. They used their travel funds to attend professional development activities at Write Around the Murray Festival, Yellamundie National First Peoples Playwriting Festival, New England Writers’ Centre, Hunter Writers Centre and Writing NSW.

These grants are offered by Writing NSW with devolved funding from Create NSW.
