About the Program

Australian writers are invited to apply for the Endeavour House Writer in Residence Program.

Located in the heart of our democracy, where a large part of the fourth estate reside, the public service is located and where federal politicians assemble, a new centre for civil society organisations and purposeful businesses in Canberra, The Level at Endeavour House is hosting a Writer in Residence Program.

In its inaugural year, the program is a recognition of the value and importance of writers in our public discourse and an acknowledgement of the role writers and storytellers play in shaping our national identity.

For the artist, it gives an opportunity to focus single-mindedly on developing a stated project.

With generous support from Endeavour House, The Australia Institute, and sponsors, this program aims to assist an Australian writer to significantly develop their next book during a period of residency at Endeavour House.

The winning writer will undertake a residency of a minimum of two weeks at Endeavour House, including modest accommodation, a room or desk on The Level and a stipend of $2,500 per week.

The residency would culminate in a public talk about the writer’s work in general or a writing workshop.

Applications have now closed for the current round of the Endeavour House Writer in Residence Program.
