Brisons Veor is delighted to announce a call for applications from writers for two fully-bursaried places for a week’s residency in West Cornwall in 2018. The bursaries (worth £275 each) are open to writers who are low-waged and working towards a collection of poetry or short stories, a novel or a play. The Brisons Veor application form can be downloaded at http://brisonsveor.org.uk/apply/ and emailed toadmin@brisonsveor.org.uk with the words ‘writers’ bursary’ in the subject line.

Applications should be accompanied by a sample of your work. Either one chapter of a novel, three poems, a short play or one act of a play, OR a short story. Applicants’ project proposals should be detailed and specific (up to 100 words) and they are asked to explain their financial situation and their need for a bursary (no more than 50 words). Applications will be treated as confidential and should arrive by 26 August 2017.

All applications will be read by the poet Katrina Naomi and a panel of the Brisons Veor trustees.

Successful applicants will be informed by 30 September 2017.
