The J.M. Coetzee Writing Fellow

The J.M. Coetzee Centre is proud to announce a new residency for South Australian writers made possible by generous funding from the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund. Offered annually for a period of three years, the aim of this residency is to give South Australian writers time to develop a creative work while participating in the rich environment offered by the Coetzee Centre.

Cross disciplinary in its outreach and project-driven in its rationale, the JMCCCP provides a stimulating research environment for leading Australian and international literary, musical, visual arts and design practitioners.

We are looking for mid-career writers who will benefit from the engaging environment the Centre offers. Fellows will be expected to contribute to the JMCCCP through readings, presentations and student engagement. Fellows will receive: a stipend of $30,000, mentoring from award winning Adelaide University writers, free participation in all events and seminars offered by the JMCCCP, office space, library privileges and expanded opportunities to engage with writers and readers.

Closing date: 1 August 2015.
Residency dates: the six-month residency must be taken up between September 2015 – June 2016.
A one-page statement addressing the concept and direction of the creative work to be undertaken during the residency
