Historic Randell Cottage in Wellington, New Zealand, has been a writers’ residency for New Zealand and French writers since 2001. The Randell Cottage Writers Trust works in partnership with the Embassy of France, New Zealand-France Friendship Fund and Creative New Zealand.
The cottage has two bedrooms and a writing studio. It is located in inner-city Thorndon close to the Lilburn Residence, Rita Angus Cottage, Wellington Asia Residency, and the Katherine Mansfield Birthplace, and within walking distance of the National and Turnbull Libraries.
