Writers in Residence at Gladstone's Library - Deadline: Monday 30 June 2014
Gladstone’s Library’s immensely successful Writer in Residence programme is now seeking submissions for residencies to take place in 2015. There will be four residencies offered in 2015. Each of the winning writers will be awarded a full month’s residency in the wonderfully creative atmosphere of Gladstone’s Library. During that month, each writer will publish two blogs about their stay, run a one-day workshop on the craft of creative writing, and host an evening event where they talk about any aspect of their writing life. Each residency comes with full board and lodging, travel expenses within the UK and a stipend of £100 per week. Previous judges of the prize include Damian Barr, Stella Duffy, and Jessica Fellowes. The 2015 judges are Vanessa Gebbie, Charles Gladstone, Katrina Naomi and Sarah Waters.
Now in its fourth year, the prize was established by Gladstone’s Library in association with Damian Barr (saloniere and author of Maggie and Me) to explore and define liberal values in the twenty-first century. As the Library’s Warden, Peter Francis, points out, ‘we are committed to maintaining Gladstone’s legacy of engagement with social, moral, and spiritual questions, by helping people reflect more deeply on the questions that concern them: this scheme is an extension of that mission’. Further details may be found here.
