KYD Regional Victorian Writers Program

The KYD Regional Victorian Writers Program is designed to support regional writers throughout KYD’s home state.

Writing opportunities

From August 2019 to December 2020 KYD will publish the work of regional Victorian writers every month alongside our regular publishing program. All KYD contributors are paid. From July 2019 to 31 October 2020 a dedicated portal for regional Victorian writers will be open at our Submittable page.

View pieces published in the series so far.

Writing workshops

In partnership with Writers Victoria, we’re bringing subsidised sessions of the KYD Writers’ Workshop to regional centres throughout the state.

Wodonga: Write That Novel!
22 February 2020, Wodonga Library

Healesville: Writing Opinions and Personal Essays
2 May 2020, Yarra Valley Writers Festival

Bendigo: Writing Personal Essays and Opinion Pieces
23 May, Bendigo Library

Please note these two workshops have been cancelled due to the COVID-19 lockdown. 

Remember our full suite of writing workshops are also available online for writers everywhere!

Regional memberships

We’re offering regional Victorians a joint membership to KYD and Writers Victoria for the special price of $70 (a saving of $20!). You can find more information about these memberships here.

KYD and Writers Victoria define regional Victorian writers as those who live more than 50km from the Melbourne GPO.

We’d like to gratefully acknowledge the support of Creative Victoria in helping us to deliver this program.
