New residency opportunity for emerging writer


Emerging writers from regional Australia are invited to apply for an exciting new two-week residency being offered at The Lock-Up, Newcastle, in the lead up to next year’s Newcastle Writers Festival.

The successful applicant will be given two weeks’ accommodation in a self-contained apartment at The Lock-Up, a contemporary inner-city arts space in the historic East End, as well as a $1,400 stipend from the Newcastle Writers Festival. The resident will also have the opportunity to participate in the festival, which last year attracted more than 5,500 people to the city. The residency is supported by The Lock-Up and the University of Newcastle.
