The Michael King Writers Fellowship

Wednesday 16 January 2013

Applications are now open for the 2013 Michael King Writers Fellowship Award.

Offered for the first time in 2003, the Fellowship was named after the late Dr Michael King. It recognises King's contribution to literature and his role in advocating for a major fellowship award for New Zealand writers.

The Fellowship Award, worth $100,000, is available to established New Zealand authors with a significant publication record in any genre. Writers should have plans for a major work which will take two or more years to complete.

Previous recipients include Owen Marshall, C.K. Stead, Kate De Goldi and Neville Peat.

Applications close on 8 March 2013.
