New Zealand has a lively literary tradition, with ‘big’ names like Janet Frame, Katherine Mansfield, Frank Sargeson, and more recently Emily Perkins and Eleanor Catton. Literature, the written and spoken word are an important part of our distinctive national creative output. Residencies designed to support and promote both unpublished and published writers, are relatively plentiful within New Zealand. Most of our universities offer residencies within their arts faculties, as do independent trusts set up by philanthropic literary agencies and individuals to support the future of literary practice. A residency might include a stipend and accommodation or it might simply offer a peaceful and or historically significant place to stay and write. Residencies are usually (if not always) by application, and for the more sought after positions the competition can be steep.
