The House on Crooked Tree Point Residency

Congratulations to the successful applicants! We hope that you have a brilliant and productive time.


Recently, many writers have found themselves in lockdown with little access to privacy and quiet due to the pandemic restrictions.

Posie Graeme-Evans has a solution to this. In partnership with TasWriters,  Posie is offering her beautiful, peaceful cottage and studio on Cygnet Bay in Nicholls Rivulet to two Tasmanian writers in need of a quiet space to write.

The initial residency will be from arrival on the morning of 28thof September to departure on the morning of the 5thof October (7 nights).

The space consists of a one bedroom, 1.5 bathroom main house and a separate studio with its own bathroom and kitchenette. Both writers will have use of the main house kitchen, living areas and laundry. There are two separate offices in the main house, and the studio has a writing nook.

This residency is available only to members of TasWriters .
