Fresh opportunity for regional artists
Posted: March 8th, 2016
writingWA has introduced the Hachette Mentoring Program for Regional WA Writers. The program is open to any resident of Western Australia’s nine regions (Gascoyne, Goldfields-Esperance, Great Southern, Kimberley, Mid-West, Peel, Pilbara, South West and Wheatbelt), and participants are asked to submit a manuscript for the chance to win a mentorship with Hachette publisher Sophie Hamley.
Entries may be fiction, non-fiction or young adult fiction. One manuscript will be selected every year, and the closing date for this year’s selection is 23 March 2016. You can find more information and the application form here.
Also, applications for the first round of the 2016 Country Arts WA Regional Arts Project Fund close on Friday 11 March. Amounts of up to $20,000 are available for community groups and a total of $15,000 is being made available for applications from individuals.
