Eco House, Darwin Botanic Gardens Residency
Jun 15 @ 1:35 am – Jul 24 @ 11:45 pm


If you had to conjure up in your mind the perfect place to write, you’d have to think hard to go past the Darwin Botanic Gardens (although, these things are very subjective).

NT Writers’ Centre is proud to extend an amazing opportunity for all NT writers outside Darwin – a 3 week residency in Eco House, Darwin Botanic Gardens, to polish off that writing project you’re always meaning to finish. Peace. Quiet. Beautiful surrounds. Few distractions.

We have now opened for expressions of interest for a residency, 8-29 August: writers are welcome to propose any form of residency they prefer. For example, we are open to more than one writer taking residence.

There will be a hosting element – using the Botanic Gardens as a venue to engage with other writers. In previous years this has taken the form of a reading in the Moonlit Garden. This year the residence has the added benefit of coinciding with the Darwin Festival, so we will seek to host this event in partnership with the festival.


Your EOI should include:

– your current project

– goals for your project during the residency

– max 5 pages example of your work

– proposed event you would like to facilitate

– any other variations you would like to propose e.g. additional people, events, requirements etc


Please call us if you would like to discuss this opportunity further, and submit your proposal to executive@ntwriters.com.au

Central Australian Writers’ meeting
Jul 14 @ 5:30 pm – 6:30 pm



Ernest Hemingway put it very bluntly when he said, ‘The first draft of anything is bad.’

This may be a little hard to stomach from someone as dashing and successful as Hemingway, but, in light of the sentiment, we are excited to invite writers in Alice Springs to the next meeting of CAW.

Bring your pens and paper, and perhaps a ‘first draft,’ to an informal and open writers meeting to discuss your work, meet other writers, get some feedback, and share stories. All genres. All welcome.

Writing grant applications: Hot tips for success! Workshop. @ The Old Courthouse
Jul 18 @ 9:00 am – 12:00 pm

Puzzled about how to apply for funding for an arts or literary project?

Overwhelmed by the grant application process?

In this workshop, the talented Mary Anne Butler takes participants through the process of writing a clear and concise artistic rationale for a grant application.

Topics covered include: addressing the question directly, use of sub-headings and dot points, how to present a clear project vision, knowing your audience (funding body research), amassing suitable support material, using positive language, and selling your vision.

NB: This workshop touches on grant budgetary matters but does NOT cover budgets in intricate detail.

Target audience: Independent artists (all genres), and arts organisations.
