The 2021 Emerging Writer Residency, The Charles Causley Trust
Deadline: Mon 23 Nov 2020
Applications are invited for a new Emerging Writer Residency opportunity at Cyprus Well, in Launceston, Cornwall (the poet’s former home owned by the Charles Causley Trust).

The Residency will be for a two-month duration and is for emerging writers interested in the work and legacy of Charles Causley and is part of our larger, two year project, Ignite.

The main aim of the residency is to provide a paid opportunity for an emerging writer to have time to write and whilst a significant proportion of their time will be for their own creative work there is a commitment to producing the following as part of the contract:

1 new artistic product generated by the residency (e.g. poem) to be posted on our website/social media
1 public performance (reading/festival appearance) live or online.
2 blogs to go on the Trust website/social media
Post residency evaluation

Ignite runs for two years from March 2020 and, as well as the Emerging Writer Residency, will support a wide range of events and activities to promote Causley’s legacy and engage with the local and wider community.

This project is grant aided by Arts Council England with significant support from Cornwall Council, Launceston Town Council, Exeter University and Plymouth University.

Please see our website for full details of the residency programme including T&C's and how to apply.

Deadline: midnight, Monday 23rd November 2020
Interviews are expected to be held on Monday 30th November 2020 via Zoom.
