I recently applied for an Australia Council New Works Grant, but was tragically rejected. I thought I'd add all the rejection letters that I've received over the years. I've written about a few before in a couple of posts. There aren't actually that many, given that the first ones are from 2001.
The one above was a rejection, but at least I got this slight boost - I was runner-up. Unfortunately the winner was able to fulfill his duties and I didn't receive the scholarship!
