Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowships 2015

The Wheeler Centre is pleased to announce the return of our popular Hot Desk Fellowships, made possible by the generous support of the Readings Foundation. Twenty writers will be offered fellowships in 2015.

The fellowships, which offer a $1000 stipend and workspace in the Wheeler Centre over a ten-week period, have been created simply to give you the space to write. Hot Desk fellows will also be given in-kind support from the Wheeler Centre’s resident organisations.

The Hot Desk Fellowships also introduce you and your work to the public – we feature all our writers and their projects on our website, as well as in a special Hot Desk Edition of the Next Big Thing series. In 2014, some of our Hot Desk fellows were approached by publishers interested in their work, and several of our Hot Desk alumni have been published since their involvement in the program. Our writers have appreciated being part of a community of writers, as well as having the productive space of a desk of their own.

Applications for 2015 Hot Desk Fellowships have now closed.
