I'm delighted to share that a fully funded spot on January's Writing the Past course has been made possible through incredibly generous contributions from many former students. Thank you so much to everyone who chipped in: what a vote of confidence!
This funding is intended for someone who'd like to take the course but who wouldn't otherwise feel they could afford it: this is the most important eligibility criteria so please think carefully about whether it applies to you.
As a guideline, I'm looking for someone whose income doesn't exceed £25,000 - or £35,000 for their household - or who is in receipt of state benefits. I've chosen this figure inline with other creative writing courses' bursary conditions: however, I know that financial challenges take many forms so if you don't quite meet these criteria you are still very welcome to apply.
If you'd like to be considered for this funded place, please fill out the form below: the deadline to apply is Friday 22nd December. I'll aim to let the successful applicant know by early January.
The 8-week course is online via Zoom and commences at 8pm GMT on Monday 22nd January 2023, so be ready to join us then if you are successful. More info about Writing the Past can be found here.
