Children's Literature Fellowship

The State Library offers a specialist fellowship to support applicants wanting to utilise the Library's children's book collection on a project exploring aspects of children's book publishing, writing or illustrating – early years, children and young adult fiction (0–18 years of age).

The Library's collection has over 100,000 items, including novels, illustrated fiction, picture books, graphic novels, poetry and traditional stories.

The fellowship carries a grant of $15,000 and is for a period of three months full time, or longer if undertaken in a part-time capacity.

Applications for the 2018–19 fellowship are now open. Fellowship applications must be received by 11.59pm on Sunday 22 April 2018.
