$1000 digital residency with TasWriters to produce a new piece of work.  Supported by the Copyright Agency.

The vision of TasWriters is a cultural landscape that evokes, supports and celebrates Tasmanian stories. Where storytellers are encouraged and acknowledged as powerful drivers of culture. The aim of this residency, outside of injecting much needed money into the community and enable literary creation, is to shed light on the powerful role that writers play in the cultural landscape.

During this crisis we are chose not to place tight strictures on how writers interpreted this residency, or how it was to be delivered. Word length was not specified but more substantial works were given more weighting in the selection process. Writers of different genres and styles were encouraged to apply
