Future Beacons Writer in Residence Programme 2022-23
Deadline: Sun 15 May 2022
We are seeking two writers in residence for the Brecon Beacons National Park (one Welsh language writer and one English language writer).

Language has the power to transport, to inspire and to fill the heart. Wales is the land of poets, and for generations writers have been captivated by the special qualities of the Brecon Beacons.

Our 2022-23 Writer in Residence programme aims to give writers the breathing space to develop work inspired by our treasured landscape.

Working in collaboration with the Hay Festival and Black Mountains College, we are seeking one Welsh language writer and one English language writer to immerse themselves in the Beacons and produce works that paint a vision of a greener future.

The appointed writers will each be awarded £10,000 to develop a project that will engage audiences with two of the greatest threats that face the National Park and the wider world: the nature and climate emergencies.

We invite applicants to submit a proposal outlining the work they would undertake if successful. We are open to all forms of writing and welcome innovation
