black&write! is a national project that recruits, trains and mentors Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander editors and writers.

It’s the first project of its kind in Australia with a dual focus on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander writing and editing, offering opportunities through the black&write! Writing Fellowships and Editing Internships.

black&write! encourages lifelong learning and literacy, and fosters a love of reading, writing and ideas.
