Applications open for Michael King Writer’s Fellowship

Creative New Zealand is calling for applications from established New Zealand writers for the Michael King Writer’s Fellowship, valued at $100,000.

The fellowship is awarded every two years to authors of any literary genre, who have already published a significant body of work, to support their work on a major project over two or more years.

First offered in 2003, the fellowship was renamed in recognition of the late Dr Michael King for his contribution to literature and his role in advocating for a major fellowship for New Zealand writers.

Creative New Zealand is seeking applications from writers who have published critically acclaimed literature works, been short-listed for or received one or more literary awards or fellowships.

Applications close at 1 pm on 26 February 2021.
