The Red Room Poetry Fellowship recognises the achievements and artistic goals of contemporary Australian poets. Now in its fourth year, the Fellowship, valued at $10,000, was established to foster poetic and professional development of an individual within the wider poetic community, encouraging poets to undertake an intensive period of creative development involving a range of commissions, residency, recordings and publication outcomes.

Previous recipients of the Red Room Poetry FellowshipAli Cobby Eckermann (2017), the late Candy Royalle (2018) and Jeanine Leane (2019).
