black&write! Writing Fellowships are awarded to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander writers with an unpublished manuscript. Two Fellowships are awarded every year to assist with manuscript development, and a publishing opportunity.

The Fellowship is run by the black&write! national project run at State Library of Queensland, with the support of Australian Council for the Arts, Hachette Australia and Magabala Books.

The Fellowship was first offered in 2011. Not awarded in 2017.
