The Octopus SchemeApr 03, 2022
We're delighted to announce our scholarship program The Octopus Scheme, an initiative to nurture writing talent from under-represented or disadvantaged backgrounds. This includes, but is not limited to, writers from a low-income background, primary carers, ex-offenders, writers with a disability, writers of colour and writers from the LGBTQIA+ community.
Applicants will be offered a fully-funded place on our Ninety Day Novel Course, including dedicated author coaching, jointly sponsored by The Novelry and a guest author.
We would like to thank our wonderful and generous author sponsors: Sophie Kinsella, Rachel Joyce, Tess Gerritsen, Lesley Kara, Kendare Blake, Ajay Chowdhury, Clare Mackintosh and AJ Pearce.
Apply here by May 31st 2022.
