Brilliant professional development opportunity for London writers

This almost – not quite – makes me wish I was back in London.
 London Literary organisation Spread the Word has teamed up with Phrased & Confused, and Dartington Festivals to offer a unique professional development opportunity for London writers. 
The six day programme kicks off with a London-based workshop on Wednesday 19 September 2012 (evening), followed by a 5-day residential at Dartington Hall in Devon from the evening of Tues 9 – Sun 14 October 2012 

During the residency writers will:
·      Take part in supportive workshops designed to increase confidence and skill in performing and presenting work.
·      Develop skills in vocal projection, movement and inhabiting texts and experiment with music and words, playing with site and audience expectations.
·      Write and present work at the Interrogate Festival on Sat 14th / Sun 15th October 2012

Writers will be asked to make a contribution of £200.  This will include travel to and from Dartington, accommodation and food for five nights and tuition costs and there is one fully funded bursary to a writer that is unable to make the £200 contribution because of financial hardship. 
For further details, selection criteria and information about how to apply email sue@spreadtheword.org.uk
Applications close on 6 August 2012.
