 Writers' Residency Logo.JPG

 

Bankstown Arts Centre and the Sydney Review of Books invite applications from Western Sydney writers for residencies of up to six weeks at the Incubate Artists Studios. There are several residencies available for writers who can work on projects onsite in Bankstown between April and September 2021.

​The Incubate Artists Studios are located on the site of the former Bankstown Women’s Rest Centre, a place that drew together women – particularly mothers – from the many local communities in the Canterbury-Bankstown area. We are looking for essay proposals that respond to the broad themes of care, isolation, custodianship and stewardship.

To apply for this residency, please submit a 300w EOI outlining how you will approach this project, your relationship to Western Sydney and a brief cover letter that maps your writing experience and interest in this project.

The successful applicants will receive a $1500 stipend, desk space for up to six weeks at the Incubate Artists Studio in Bankstown in May-September, editorial oversight and publication on the Sydney Review of Books. There will also be opportunities for showcasing the work produced at a number of Bankstown Arts Centre/SRB events during 2021.

Applications due 12 April 2021.

Apply via Submittable here.
