2016 Mildura Writers Residency Call for Applicants

Building on the success of the 2015 Mildura Writers Festival Residency, Arts Mildura is pleased to announce the residency will again be offered in 2016. The Mildura Writers Festival Residency will take place between
7 July – 7 August 2016. Application forms available from mid November here.

Completed applications are due by COB 22nd January 2016.

 
The Mildura Writers Festival Residency was created to support writers of any genre and for the successful applicant to propose a project that will enhance the regional or national cultural landscape. The committee were impressed by the number of applications and the caliber of writers who were keen to come to Mildura for the 2015 Festival and again invite applications for the 2016 Mildura Writer in Residence.

In 2015 the inaugural Mildura Writer in Residence was undertaken by Tracy Farr. Farr’s debut novel The Life and Loves of Lena Gaunt (published by Fremantle Press) was shortlisted for the 2014 WA Premier’s Book Awards and the 2014 Barbara Jefferis Award, and longlisted for the 2014 Miles Franklin Literary Award.
