The Anne Edgeworth Writers’ Fellowship is to provide an emerging ACT region writer with up to $5,000 to advance their writing skills. 

The Fellowship is provided annually by the Anne Edgeworth Trust and is administered by the ACT Writers Centre.

The 2016 Anne Edgeworth Fellow is Rosanna Stevens.

Anne Edgeworth (also known as Anne Godfrey-Smith) was a prominent poet, writer, theatre director, academic, conservationist and activist for reconciliation. She died in June 2011. Anne mentored many young writers as a tutor, author and poet and her family has established an annual award for young writers in her memory.
