Writers and Poets Artistic Residence

I offer free accommodation and fuel for bona fide writers and poets to come up be here and hopefully be inspired. There is no expectation that you produce work while you are here, I do ask that you share a sample of your work and what you have learned with your fellow Moora Moora residents. An ideal term is one month, with a minimum of 2 weeks and a maximum of 6 weeks. Please bring your own food. The guest cottage consists of a bedroom, a lounge/writing room and a kitchen/bathroom in the making. For now The 2 cottages share a bathroom and kitchen and there is the opportunity to share community meals and work with others on shared workdays if you wish.Read more
