Melbourne Writers Festival brings writers and readers together to be inspired, challenged and thrilled by an intelligent, rousing and diverse program of books and ideas. Since 1986, the organisation has entertained hundreds of thousands of readers as Australia’s boldest literary festival. Based in Melbourne, a UNESCO City of Literature, we provide the inspiration and framework for vital, timely conversations.
This fellowship, worth up to $15,000, is awarded annually to writers in the non-fiction fields of biography, autobiography and life writing to further a work in progress. The winner will be supported in their work by the prize and access to facilities from the Faculty of Arts.
The Wheeler Centre is Melbourne’s home for smart, passionate and entertaining public talks on every topic. Across events and a unique collection of videos, podcasts and original writing, The Wheeler Center supports some of Australia’s finest local and international writers and thinkers.
