The NZWG has announced the writers supported from the final Seed Grant round of 2017. Four Seed and two Seed Advanced grants were awarded, selected from 89 Seed and 24 Seed Advanced applications.
Fiona Samuel’s A Handful of Days and Patrick Gillies’ Mad Cows took the Seed Advanced grants.
Peter Force’s Introduced Species, Alex Sutherland’s Jump, David Hay’s South West and Tanya Moir’s Star-Crossed received Seed Grants.
The Guild noted that many of the top 15 projects in contention for Seed Grants had been entered previously. Seed and Seed Advanced Grants are supported by the NZFC and will return in 2018.
