    With thanks to a generous sponsor from the Wairarapa community, New Zealand Pacific Studio (NZPS) invites applications for a three week residency. The purpose of this RAK Mason Fellowship is to encourage creativity, to explore the different literary forms or genres and their potential, and to honour one of New Zealand’s foremost writers, RAK Mason (1905-1971), with his intense energy, commitment to literature, and his interest in the ways different literary forms inform each other.

  • Applications accepted January 15 – February 15, 2018  Ema Saiko Poetry Fellowship
    New Zealand Pacific Studio invites applications for the three week 2018 Ema Saiko Poetry Fellowship.
    The purpose of this Ema Saiko Poetry Fellowship is to encourage the writing of poetry and, in turn, to honour the Japanese poet and painter Ema Saiko (1787-1861). Writing at a time when it was unusual for women to be included in the rarefied circles of male poets writing in Chinese, Ema Saiko dedicated herself to, and developed, a poetic form centred on the discovery and unfolding of a rich intellectual and artistic life connected to her physical environment. Saiko was acutely attuned to the daily and seasonal transformations of the natural world.
    NZPS welcomes applications from both female and male poets of all cultures – poets who seek a sustained focus on their writing. Applicants can be working in any way and do not have to relate to Ema Saiko in terms of style or content.
