Emerging Writer's Fellowship

In partnership with the Emerging Writers' Festival (EWF), the Emerging Writer's Fellowship will see an emerging writer spend up to three months working in a dedicated space in State Library Victoria, immersing themselves in the Library's collection as well as learning, developing and networking at the Emerging Writers' Festival.

Applicants from regional Victoria and interstate are strongly encouraged to apply.

For further information about the fellowship and how to apply, please visit the Emerging Writers' Festival website.

The Emerging Writer's Fellowship is proudly presented by EWF and State Library Victoria. The fellowship has been made possible with the generous support of the Hart Line Fund. The home-stay accommodation has been generously donated by Virginia Lovett and Rose Hiscock.

2020 program

We are pausing our Emerging Writer's Fellowship in 2020 to look at how we can create more value for participants and the Victorian community, and greater alignment to the Library’s strategy.

We look forward to announcing details of a redesigned Emerging Writer's Fellowship program that will return in 2021.
