Named in honour of poet, novelist and short story writer Neilma Gantner (1922-2015), the travel fund recognises the unique value of travel in the development of new writing and literary careers.
The travel fund is open to emerging, midcareer and established Australian writers and literary sector workers. This includes writers, editors, agents, publishers, librarians, booksellers, employees and associates of literary organisations and journals, and other literary professionals currently living in Australia.
Applicants can apply for grants between $2,000 to $10,000.
Judges will be looking for applications that demonstrate how strategic travel opportunities will benefit their own writing practice, career development and/or the broader Australian literary sector.
