Emerging Writer Exchange

The 2019 Emerging Writing Residency opportunity will support a three month residency at one of Asialink’s established global collaborators located throughout the Asian region.

Supported by the Malcolm Robertson Foundation, the $12,000 grant will assist the development of an emerging writer working in the the fields of poetry, fiction or theatre. The residency will allow dedicated time for research, writing and two way engagement in the region.

Applicants will be asked to complete an exchange proposal that demonstrates a clear relation between their writing practice, their selected collaborator and what they plan to achieve during their residency.

As Asialink's global collaborators are a diverse range of organisations, applicants are ask to ensure their proposed collaborator list ‘Writing’ as a supported artform. To ensure this we recommend searching by artform. Applicants are not required to contact their nominated collaborator during the selection process.
