Established and mid-career New Zealand writers are invited to apply for the Katherine Mansfield Menton Fellowship 2013.
The fellowship is one of New Zealand's longest-standing and most prestigious literary opportunities. It offers a residency of at least six months in Menton, France and NZ$75,000. The support of the city of Menton enables a New Zealand author to work at the Villa Isola Bella, where Katherine Mansfield lived and wrote during the latter part of her life.
Past recipients of this fellowship include Janet Frame, Michael King, Lloyd Jones, Witi Ihimaera, Vincent O'Sullivan, Bill Manhire, Ian Wedde, Dame Fiona Kidman, Jenny Pattrick, Ken Duncum and the 2012 recipient, Justin Paton.
The Fellowship is an initiative of the Winn-Manson Menton Trust and is administered by Creative New Zealand.
Applications close at 5pm on Friday, September, 21, 2012.
