NZSA Peter and Dianne Beatson Fellowship 2017 – open for applications

NZSA Peter & Dianne Beatson Fellowship open for applications from 9 June 2017

Calling for applications from writers of fiction, non-fiction, poetry and drama with a literary track record, who are currently working on a new project.

This annual Fellowship is generously donated by Peter Beatson and provides the successful applicant with a stipend of $7,000.

In 2016 the fellowship was awarded to Kāpiti writer Tina Makereti, enabling her to take time out to write before taking up a new role as Lecturer in Creative Writing at Massey University. The Fellowship time was crucial in making significant progress on a new novel, The Imaginary Lives of James Pōneke. By the time the Beatson Fellowship concluded, she had a final draft to send to her publisher, and the novel is now due for publication in March 2018 with Random House.

Deadline for applications: 4pm 18 August 2017
