The University of East Anglia UEA and The Novelry are delighted to announce The Novelry MA Creative Writing Scholarship worth £16,500 to cover fees and living expenses for a writer resident in the UK to enjoy a whole year writing their novel.
We want to offer 'a year of one's own' to a writer who otherwise might never find the time, space, and support, to get to work on their novel.
Our scholar will have the support of the UEA Faculty of Creative Writing in East Anglia and The Novelry including mentoring throughout the year from prize-winning author Louise Dean and post-MA support to finish the novel to publishing standard and secure literary agent representation.
This is one of the most meaningful scholarships, bursaries or grants for a writer in the UK. The scholarship will be awarded to the candidate who demonstrates and shows the potential for creative excellence in long-form fiction. It is available to UK residents, and open to members and non-members of The Novelry.
To find out more head to our MA Creative Writing page here.
Seize the chance to take a year out of real life to focus on fiction and your future career as an author.
Hurry! The deadline for applications is 12 noon 1st May 2020.
