The Arts Queensland Poet in Residence Program is designed to develop Queensland’s poetry culture by providing a residency for a high-profile poet or spoken word artist to engage directly with Queensland poets and poetry community in a meaningful and collaborative way.
Have a daunting project but no support? Queensland Writers Centre’s Fishbowl Residency provides the writing space, mentorship and assistance for one lucky writer to complete a draft of their work. Over this ten-week residency, the successful resident works from our offices and shares their progress with our members. Applications are accepted all year round and are open only to current, financial members of Queensland Writers Centre.
Once a year, one writer is selected for the Flinthart Residency, getting the chance to spend 10 weeks working full-time on their next project at a dedicated space in the Queensland Writers Centre offices in the State Library of Queensland. They will be awarded a stipend and 15-hour mentorship with an industry professional to support them during their residency.
The KSP Writers’ Centre is proud to support the development of literary work by hosting a number of annual residencies and fellowships. Offers placements in the categories of Established; Upcoming; Emerging; Scholarship; Established; and Fellowships.
