Writers in Residence 2020, Gladstone’s Library
Deadline: Fri 13 Mar 2020
Gladstone’s Library’s competitive Writer in Residence programme provides space and resources for four writers working in the English language at all stages of their career whose work engages with liberal values. The proposed dates of the tenures are February, May, September and November 2020.

By liberal values, we mean:

a commitment to freedom and social justice;
tolerance and respect of difference;
open-mindedness coupled with intellectual curiosity;
generosity of spirit and a willingness to learn from others.

Residencies can be taken in two two-week blocks, and residencies of a single fortnight will also be considered. We are also flexible with dates.

Each residency includes:
Accommodation in an ensuite room for a period of four consecutive weeks;
All meals (breakfast, lunch and dinner) and refreshments (telephone calls, alcoholic drinks, packaged snacks and formal Afternoon Tea are not included);
Travel expenses to and from the Library at the start and end of the residency (HMRC mileage allowance or standard bus/train fares within the UK);
An honorarium of £100.00 per week.
