Fulbright New Zealand and Creative New Zealand invite applications for the 2010 Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific Writer’s Residency, an award which offers a New Zealand writer of Pacific heritage the opportunity to work for three months on a creative writing project exploring Pacific identity, culture or history at the University of Hawai‘i.

Valued at NZ$30,000, the residency includes return airfares to Hawai‘i, accommodation costs and a monthly stipend. It is open to writers across all genres, including fiction and non-fiction authors, poets and playwrights. Previous recipients have included children’s author Sarona Aiono-Iosefa, poet Tusiata Avia, playwright Victor Rodger and filmmakers Sima Urale and Toa Fraser.

Hawai’i has been identified as a strategic location for artists and is considered the hub of Pacific writing with numerous universities, library resources, networks, writers’ forums and publishers. It is also an important link to the mainland US and has a strong indigenous culture.

The three month residency is available from August to November 2010. The closing date for applications is Thursday 1 April 2010.
