Access for Regional Writers Grants are awarded by Writing NSW to help writers in regional NSW access professional development.

They used their travel funds to attend professional development activities at Yellamundie National First Peoples Playwriting Festival, New England Writers’ Centre, Hunter Writers Centre and Writing NSW.
These grants are offered by Writing NSW with devolved funding from Create NSW.
