The Hazel Rowley Literary Fund was established to support the annual awarding of a Literary Fellowship.  The Fellowship is designed to support Australian writers of biography, and extends to include a writer who is working on an aspect of cultural or social history.

Established by Hazel’s family and friends, the Hazel Rowley Literary Fund is a not for profit tax-deductible fund, managed by the Australian Communities Foundation.

All donations to the Fund are welcome. Your donation helps support biography writing in Australia.
