Great news! New Writing South - an inspirational literary organisation serving the south east of England - has launched an exciting new bursary scheme. The New Buds Award will give small grants up to £900 to writers living or working in the region.
The awards will particularly help emerging writers at early and/or crucial times in their career to apply for grants below the Arts Council’s Grants for the arts threshold.
Aimed at those striving for excellence and writing fiction, poetry and drama, the awards can help pay for career development and ‘time to write’ expenses and can also cover: professional training (but not formal education), mentoring, travel costs for attending a course, research or other valid and viable means of support that will enable the writer applying to write.
