Hazel Rowley















Literary Fund


In Australia:


A sub-fund has been established with the Australian Communities Foundation and aims to commemorate Hazel’s life and her writing legacy through activities that support biography and writing in general. The sub-fund will:

  • Assist a writer with a Hazel Rowley Literary Fellowship to encourage a writing proposal by funding travel and research. The focus will be on, but not restricted to, biography.
