Funding for Writers:
The Literature Wales Writers’ Bursaries and Mentoring Schemes are now open

We are delighted to announce that the next round of Bursaries and Mentoring is now open for submission. The schemes are open to emerging and experienced writers alike.

The Literature Wales Writers’ Bursaries enable writers to develop new work without any firm commitment to its publication. This gives writers the opportunity to venture into new territory and develop their artistic process, providing them with the time and resources to research, write, review and reflect. 

The Mentoring Scheme offers support and practical advice to writers at the start of their careers by offering them a place on a bespoke mentoring course as well as a series of one-to-one sessions with an experienced writer in order to develop a specific work in progress to a publishable standard.

The guidelines and application forms for the Writers’ Bursaries and Mentoring schemes are available to download from the Literature Wales website.

The closing date for applications for 2019 Bursaries and Mentoring is
5.00 pm on Tuesday 11 September 2018.
