WrICE: the Writers Immersion and Cultural Exchange Program.

[RMIT–Copyright Agency Asia–Pacific Partnership: A partnership led by RMIT University with support from Copyright Agency]

The WrICE program brings together a new group of five Australian and five Asia-Pacific writers each year for a face-to-face collaborative residency in Asia followed by a reciprocal event in Melbourne, Australia. Founded in 2013, WrICE contributes to an Asia-Pacific community of writers, sparking networks and connections and raising the professional profile of writers across the region. It provides a solid framework for intercultural and intergenerational dialogue—the exchange and furthering of knowledge, creativity, skills and cultural perspectives—that is underpinned by principles of mutual respect and a desire for genuine reciprocity.

At the heart of the program is the simple notion that there is great value in creating opportunities for writers (and writing students) to step outside their often isolated writing studios and familiar cultural environs to connect and share ideas with other writers from different cultures and across generations. By supporting the development of individual practice in a collaborative way, WrICE not only contributes to individual creativity but evolves practice across the sector. Through the work of individuals, WrICE has an influence on broader societal perspectives, changing the stories we tell and listen to.


About Us

For short, our main feature, the writer's directory, provides a way for writers to find one another, but more importantly, the resources provided make it easy for event hosts—especially for international event hosts—literary organizers, arts administrators, librarians, booksellers, and readers to get in touch with writers. It's a HOME FOR INDONESIAN WRITERS. We strive to break down the language barriers that have prevented Indonesian books or literature from becoming more widespread.

Questions, comments, articles, info, etc. are more than welcome. Just send us an e-mail, mention us on Twitter/Instagram/Facebook or use the contact form.
