Bursary from a Tŷ Newydd Graduate – 2016

logo-ty-newyddMeg Kingston is a writer who’s achieved a certain amount of success with her writing and now wants to assist new writers following a similar path. In her own words:

Tŷ Newydd is a magical place that draws me back time and again. The beauty of the setting, the friendliness of the staff and the buzz that travels home with me are bonuses to the actual content of the courses. I’ve gained so much from my time there and the financial assistance Tŷ Newydd gave me for attending courses at the start of my writing career that I’d like to help other writers to benefit, too.
I’m making a bursary contribution of £250 available for a writer or writers who wish to attend a course at this magical haven.
The bursary is intended to assist a writer who, like myself, has a disability or chronic illness to contend with, and has achieved some form of publication on their own merits. The publication doesn’t need to have been paid, but achieved in a competitive environment – such as star letter in a nationally-available magazine.

If you want to apply for this bursary, please send an email or a letter explaining how it would help you to attend a course at Tŷ Newydd, and enclose a copy of your published item to Tŷ Newydd.
