Eco House Writers’ Residency

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 [email protected]
