Low waged authors: win a writing course with a major literary agency
The ereader Kobo and lit agents Curtis Brown are offering three scholarships to aspiring writers this year. It covers tuition fees for each of the following London courses: the three-month novel writing course, (starts in April so you need to hurry with your application if you’re interested, but on the plus side this could be the course that attracts the fewest entries because the scholarship was only announced last week), three-month writing-for-children course, (starts in the autumn) and six-month novel-writing course (starts in 2014).
