Creative Writing student awarded Penguin Write It Fellowship
Master of Arts in Creative Writing graduate, sydney khoo, has been awarded a 2019 Penguin Random House Write It Fellowship.
Write It is an annual fellowship program that aims to find, nurture and develop unpublished writers across all genres, with a focus on under-represented sections of the community. This includes writers from a socio-economically marginalised background, LGBTQ+, Indigenous or CALD (culturally and linguistically diverse) writers, or writers with a disability.
The response we received from budding authors across Australia has been phenomenal and we’re delighted the fellowship has captured a wonderful cross-section of Australian voices.
