WRiCE Early Career Fellowships


We’ve long been interested in the WrICE (Writers Immersion and Cultural Exchange) program, whether it’s been in conversation with Maxine Beneba Clarke, or sharing video selfies from participants in Vietnam – so we’re delighted to share this call for applications for the 2016 program.

Applications are open for a 2016 WrICE Early Career Writer Fellowship, an initiative of the nonfictionLab at RMIT University and thanks to generous support from the Copyright Agency. Applicants should be in the early stages of their career, with one published book or equivalent writing success. The Fellowship is valued at $9000, inclusive of all residency costs and a fee for participation. The Fellow will join a face-to-face community of writers through participation in a collaborative immersion residency with other emerging and established writers. The collaborative residency will take place in Guangzhou and Yangshou, China in April 2016 and will be followed by activity later in the year in Melbourne, in association with the Melbourne Writers Festival.

Email expressions of interest to wrice@rmit.edu.au by Friday 31 July 2015. Your application should include a CV, 100 word bio and a 250 word statement outlining why you would like to participate in WrICE.
