The KYD Regional Victorian Writers Program is designed to support regional writers throughout KYD’s home state.
From August 2019 to June 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 30 April 2020 a dedicated portal for regional Victorian writers will be open at our Submittable page.
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
For those who aren’t able to attend our in-person workshops, remember our full suite of writing workshops are also available online for writers everywhere!
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.
