Applications are now open for the May Gibbs Children's Literature Trust 2020 Creative Time Residential Fellowships for published authors and illustrators of books for young people.

To be eligible to apply for a Fellowship you must have had at least one title for children or young adults published by a trade publisher.

From the May Gibbes Children's Literature Trust website:

“The Trust’s Creative Time Residential Fellowships aim to be a gift of time, enabling authors or illustrators to take up a one-month residency to concentrate intensively on the research, development and/or editing of new work for readers up to the age of 18.

“Fellowships are away from home at a time to suit you. The Trust provides travel to and from, and delightful rent-free accommodation and local support in one of our three host cities – Adelaide, Canberra or Brisbane.

“To be eligible to apply for a 2019 fellowship you must have had at least one title for children or young adults published by a trade publisher.

“Selection Committee members assess each application taking into consideration:

  • The clarity of the rationale for the proposed project(s)
  • The contribution the Fellowship is likely to make to the development of the applicant’s creative skills and career
  • The literary merit of the proposed project(s).”

Closing date: 11.59pm Tuesday 30 April, 2019
