Scottish Book Trust has announced that it is now taking applications for the New Writers Awards, basically a bursary of £2,000 plus a week in a writers’ retreat, some mentoring and other useful things. It’s open to anyone over 18 and there are 10 winners. As a recipient of a New Writers Bursary myself – back in the days when they made much less of a fuss about it – I can tell you that even then it was well worth applying for. See this link for details, and if you’re going for it – good luck!
