The New Zealand Society of Authors and the Auckland Museum are once again delighted to offer three grants in 2013 to provide assistance to writers wishing to undertake research for a writing project. 

And even better - the deadline has now been extended to 14th December.

The grants were offered for the first time in 2012 to NZSA members and Friends of The Museum. 
This year one of the local grants will be open to any Auckland writer who wishes to apply.

The grants create an opportunity for three writers to utilise the considerable facilities and resources of the Auckland Museum Library in the development of their fiction or non-fiction manuscript.  They comprise one national grant of $3500  (supplemented by an optional 4 weeks of accommodation in Auckland at the Michael King Writers Centre)  and two regional grants of $1500 for two Auckland writers.

The Library holds one of New Zealand’s major research collections and the breadth and depth of the historical record is well suited to writers’ research.  The Library is available for use by the general public, in addition to academics and researchers.

NEW Deadline: 14 December 

For application forms, terms and conditions please visit www.authors.org.nz or email office@nzauthors.org.nz
