Announcing the winners of the 2022 Writers SA Varuna fellowships

Writers SA and Varuna the National Writers’ House are delighted to announce the 2022 recipient of our SA First Nations Writers Fellowship is established artist and emerging writer Katherine Bell.

Kat will be spending a week in the Blue Mountains, writing and developing her craft, with seven nights at Varuna, a $300 travel subsidy, and an expert consultation with a Varuna writing consultant.

For the SA Emerging Writers Fellowship we received some really outstanding applications across a range of mediums and genres. We narrowed our shortlist down and then brought in another judge to break the tie. We’re delighted to award this fellowship to poet Kerry Rosser who will be spending seven days at the National Writers’ House, and will both receive a travel subsidy and consultations while there.

Special thanks to everyone who applied in this round. It was truly an honour to be privy to the wide scope of projects our local writers are penning and we wish you all the best. Please do keep an eye on our newsletter for the next round in 2023 and apply for other fellowships directly through Varuna, The National Writers’ House.
