Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowships 2022

28 January 2022

The Wheeler Centre, in conjunction with The Readings Foundation, are offering twenty-one fellowships to emerging writers, and a playwright. Recipients, known as Hot Desk fellows, will receive a thousand dollar stipend, and the use of a workspace at the Melbourne based Wheeler Centre for ten weeks, to work on their writing projects.

Hot Desk fellows will also have the opportunity to meet, network and work with the Wheeler Centre’s resident organisations including Writers Victoria, Emerging Writers’ Festival, Australian Poetry, Express Media, Small Press Network and the Melbourne Writers Festival. In addition, Hot Desk Fellowships introduce emerging writers and their work to the public – we will feature all our writers and their projects on our website, as well as in a special Hot Desk Edition of The Next Big Thing series.

Applications for the fellowships are open now until Monday 28 February 2022.
