Melbourne Recital Centre Writers’ Residency

In 2018, Melbourne Recital Centre and the Emerging Writers’ Festival are thrilled to present a new residency exploring and expanding the creative possibilities of arts writing. We’re looking for three emerging writers who are keen to develop their critical and creative practice through responding to performance works.

Each writer will receive a $1500 stipend and double pass tickets to selected performances at the Melbourne Recital Centre, and in return will produce three written works in response to three concerts. Finished pieces will be published on the Melbourne Recital Centre’s digital channels.

Additionally, selected writers will participate in two professional development workshops and speak on a panel as part of the 2018 Emerging Writers’ Festival.
