NonfictioNOW Conference in partnership with RMIT University is inviting applications from Australian writers, who have been accepted as NonfictioNOW 2017 Panelists or Roundtable members, for Travel Fellowships to support attendance in Reykjavik, Iceland, June 1st-4th.
A limited number of Fellowships are available. Each Fellowship includes a cash award of $500 AUD, which can be used to help offset travel expenses to attend NonfictioNOW 2017.
Fellowship winners will be asked to commit to participating in a public event to be held at RMIT University in Melbourne after NonfictioNOW 2017, hosted by RMIT’s non/fictionLab. This event (date TBC) aims to bring a little of the Reykjavik event to Melbourne, to continue and extend the conversations begun in Iceland and to engage with Australian writers and communities.
To apply for a Fellowship, please complete this application form online. The closing date for applications is Friday, 17th March 2017.
Criteria for selection:
– proof of acceptance on NonfictioNOW 2017 panel or roundtable
– brief statement of financial need (since funds are limited we will prioritise those in greatest need – including students and freelance writers/editors)
– willingness to participate in post-NonfictioNOW Melbourne event (bearing in mind that this may be impossible for some non-Melbourne based writers and we will not discriminate on that basis).
