The Wheeler Centre is pleased to announce the return of our popular Hot Desk Fellowships, made possible by the generous support of the Readings Foundation. Twenty writers will be offered fellowships in 2013.
Offering a $1000 stipend, and workspace in the Wheeler Centre over a two month period, the fellowships have been created simply to give you the space to write. Hot desk fellows will also be given in-kind support from the Wheeler Centre’s resident organisations.
The Hot Desk Fellowships also introduce you and your work to the public – we feature all our writers and their projects on our website. In 2012, some of our Hot Desk Fellows were approached by publishers interested in their work. Our writers have appreciated being part of a community of writers, as well as the productive space of a desk of their own.
In 2013, we will be offering four intakes.
Applications for the final two Hot Desk Fellowship intakes of 2013 are now open. Download the application guidelines below.
