What's On 2014
D’Arcy Writers’ Residencies on Waiheke Island
New Zealand writers are invited to apply for two three-month residencies to write essays of about 10,000 words on New Zealand life and culture.
This is an opportunity for writers to contribute to a genre which has been neglected in New Zealand literature over recent decades. An executive committee of experienced writers, editors, journalists and librarians will judge the entries.
The winning writers will reside in a two-bedroom cottage on the hill above Onetangi Beach on Waiheke Island with a stipend of $1000 a month. Full details including terms and conditions are available on request from firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants should supply: 1, a well developed synopses of the proposed essay; 2, a biographical note; 3, references to and some examples of previous work (no more than 2000 words); and 4, an indication of which three-month period during 2015 would best suit them.
Applications, which will close on September 15, 2014, should be sent to Waiheke Residencies, PO Box 2320, Shortland Street, Auckland 1140. The two winners will be announced on Monday, October 17.
Members of the executive committee include: Gordon McLauchlan (chair), writer; Bookman Graham Beattie, book blogger; Bruce Ansley, writer; Hamish Keith, writer; Kirsten Warner, writer and chair of the Auckland branch of the NZ Society of Authors (PEN Inc); John Campbell, journalist and broadcaster; Virginia Larson, editor, North and South magazine; Karren Beanland, manager of the Michael King Writers Centre; and Fiona Kralicek, Waiheke Island library manager.
