Writers in Residence 2021
Open for Submissions Feb 3 - Mar 13 2020!
Submissions are now being taken for our acclaimed Writers in Residence programme. Started in 2010 by author, journalist and salonierre Damian Barr, the scheme has supported over forty writers so far.
Writers at all stages of their career should feel able to apply for Residency. We are proud to say that Residencies have supported some of the finest writers in the English language, whether they won for their seventeenth book or their first.
We are proud of our long tradition of supporting writers through the WiR programme and we are excited to seek out new writers who will come and create their next work at our Library in 2021.
Recent alumni include Sarah Perry, Sophie Mackintosh, William Atkins and Emily Morris.
Please see our submission guidelines page for more information and terms and conditions.
