Writer-in-Residence, Paisley Book Festival
Deadline: Mon 18 Oct 2021
Following a successful inaugural year of the Writer-in-Residence position, led by writer, educator and musician, Imogen Stirling, as part of the 2021 Paisley Book Festival, we are pleased to once again be inviting submissions from an experienced writer to be our 2022 Festival Writer-in-Residence.

The Writer in Residence at the Paisley Book Festival presents an opportunity for a mid-career writer to engage creatively with the festival's remit, programme and themes, and to use their skills and experience to support the work and passions of local reading and writing groups. One of the main aims of this role is to work with local communities and help us reach wider audiences. This post has been funded by Creative Scotland.

Writers must have a proven track record in their field as well as a history of community engagement and of delivering workshops.

The 2022 Festival will take place from Thursday 17th – Saturday 26th February 2022 and is funded by Renfrewshire Council and delivered in partnership with Renfrewshire Leisure as part of Future Paisley.

Fee: The Writer-in-Residence will be paid a set fee of £8,000 for the residency, in instalments. Reasonable expenses for travel, accommodation if necessary, and any additional required resources will be provided on top of this fee.
