Map showing Randell Cottage

Historic Randell Cottage in Wellington, New Zealand, has been a writers' residency since 2001. In partnership with the Embassy of France, New Zealand-France Friendship Fund and Creative New Zealand, the Randell Cottage Writers Trust provides a six-month residency each year to a French and NZ writer respectively.

The cottage was gifted by the Price family to be the first dedicated writers residency in the capital city, and the first for international writers in the Southern Hemisphere. It reciprocates in some measure for the New Zealand Post Mansfield Prize which sends writers to Menton, France, and adds an exciting perspective to the cultural and literary life of Wellington.
