Take your story to The Next Chapter.

Every writer knows that the story is only the beginning; that original storytelling needs time, support and a space in which to thrive.

Each year, we pick ten outstanding writers and give them $15,000 each to develop their work. We match them with a mentor and work closely with them on bringing their writing to life, connecting them with peers, publishers and readers.

Applications for 2019 are now open until 5pm Friday 12 July. And remember, you can have someone nominate you, too. Find out more.
