Current Call Outs

Open Call for Proposals for the RM Writer’s Residency extended until midnight Wednesday the 24th November 2021

RM is excited to announce a new writer’s residency programme for 2022. Successful applicants will receive $1000.00 to produce a text and will have access to our Archive Room for the 2 month duration of the residency. The work of residents will be published in an annual catalogue.

This residency seeks to provide further support and opportunities for arts writing. We encourage the participation of various practitioners, including writers of art criticism, experimental texts, poetry and fiction. RM seeks to engage with emerging and more seasoned practitioners and invites writers of all levels of experience to apply. This residency is in keeping with our wider aims, to engage with the practices, discourses and modes of presentation that aren’t well-supported or easily accessible in Auckland.

Please include in your proposal:
_A written statement (maximum of 500 words)
_Include a written outline of the proposed work, with a background of your practice and overview of what you intend to write for the residency. This proposal is merely a starting point, and we acknowledge that your text may diverge from this initial proposition.
_2x examples or extracts of written work.

Email applications as a single PDF document to by midnight Wednesday the 24th of November, 2021.

Please name your file using the following format:
