2010 Michael King Writers Centre residency

The University of Auckland/Creative New Zealand Writer-in-Residence at the Michael King Writers’ Centre 2010.

The University of Auckland and the Michael King Writers’ Centre are calling for applications for a joint six-month writer’s residency in 2010.

The residency, supported by Creative New Zealand, will take place between July and December, during the University’s second semester. A stipend of $30,000 is offered.

The residency aims to foster New Zealand writing by providing an opportunity for an established author to work full-time on a major project in an academic environment, together with free accommodation and a studio working space at the Michael King Writers’ Centre in Devonport, Auckland.

The residency is open to New Zealand authors working in any form of creative writing, including fiction, poetry, drama and non-fiction. The appointed writer will be required to live at the Michael King Writers’ Centre for the term of the appointment and spend two days each week at the Department of English at The University of Auckland, in order to contribute to its creative and cultural life.

Applications for the residency will close on Friday 26 February, 2010, and the selection will be made by the end of March.
