The 2017 Kat Muscat Fellowship


Express Media is honoured to announce the 2017 Kat Muscat Fellowship to support and develop young women writers and editors from around Australia.

The annual Kat Muscat Fellowship offers professional development up to the value of $3,000 for an editorial project or work of writing by a young person. Now in its second year, the Fellowship aims to continue Kat’s legacy and further develop the future of defiant and empathic young Australian women.

Kat Muscat was a brilliant young mind of the Australian writing community, whose formidable talent was demonstrated through her incisive writing and perceptive editing. Kat was an integral part of Express Media for many years, before becoming Editor of Voiceworks from 2012 to 2014. Throughout her 10 years with Express Media, Kat helped to shape the career of young writers and editors from all around Australia.

Applicants must be female identifying (including trans and genderqueer women, and non-binary people) and aged between 16 to 30 at the commencement of the Fellowship.

The Kat Muscat Fellowship is made possible with the generous support of the community and the Muscat family.

Applications are open now until 11.59pm, Sunday 15 January 2016. For information on selection criteria and how to apply, visit www.expressmedia.wpengine.com/the-kat-muscat-fellowship.
