Virtual Writer In Residence

Melbourne UNESCO City of Literature is now open for applications for their virtual writers in residence program

They will be placing writers from our sister Cities of Literature in 10 organisations across Melbourne, and Victoria this November. Writers resident in any of the UNESCO Cities of Literature can apply.

Each writer in residence will be connected with their selected organisation and will  be required to produce agreed upon content for the organisation.

This content will be any three of the following (or three of just one of the following):

  • a workshop

  • a written piece

  • an appearance/ panel

  • a social media takeover

The residency will also include opportunities for meetings with all the writers in residence, introductions to all organisations and facilitated further connections with Melbourne as a City of Literature.

Virtual writers in residence will be paid AUD$2000 and retain all copyright for their work.
