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

Planning to apply? Applications for 2019 will be open 5pm Thursday 2 May – 5pm Friday 12 July, giving you plenty of time to prepare. And remember, you can have someone nominate you, too. Find out more.
