I am so incredibly charmed by Overland‘s inaugural writer’s residency being offered this year to single mothers.
If this is you, please please consider applying. It’s a wonderful opportunity including space, resources, money and an amazing mentor in Alison Croggon.
It’s based in Melbourne, so there is that to consider in applying but may many more writing centres in other places consider single mother writers as their pool for residencies in the future. Because some of my very favourite writers have been single mothers. And I was a single mother and I know it is so hard to write on top of all that.
And basically, this is one of the most feminist gestures I’ve witnessed by a literary journal, go Overland.
