Stay in a Cornish writers’ retreat – full bursary available for low waged writers

West Cornwall writers retreat

Brisons Veor wants applications from writers for two fully-bursaried places for a week’s residency in 2018 at their centre in west Cornwall. 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.

You have to send a sample of your writing with your application: 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).

The deadline is 26 August 2017.

The Brisons Veor application form can be downloaded at and emailed with the words ‘writers’ bursary’ in the subject line.

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.

Good luck!
