in New Zealand literature over recent decades. An executive committee of 
experienced writers, editors, journalists and librarians  will judge the entries.

Beach on Waiheke Island with a stipend of $1000 a month. Full details including
 terms and conditions are available on request from

Applicants should supply: 1, a well developed synopses of the proposed essay; 2,
a biographical note; 3, references to and some examples of previous work 
(no more than 2000 words); and 4, an indication of which three-month period 
during 2015 would best suit them.

Applications, which will close on September 15, 2014, should be sent to Waiheke 
Residencies, P O Box 2320, Shortland Street, Auckland 1140. The two winners will 
be  announced on Monday, October 17.
