A liberal opportunity

Gladstone’s Library is inviting applications for its 2017 Writers in Residence programme.

The selected authors will receive a month’s residency at Gladstone’s Library –the UK’s only Prime-Ministerial library – which will include board, lodging and an honorarium of £100 per week. During their residency, the selected writers will blog, run a creative writing workshop and host an evening event.

Prose fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, screenplays and drama are all eligible. To apply, writers should submit a one-page CV/biography, a copy of the book they would like the judges to consider (manuscript submissions plus evidence of a contract and publishing schedule are acceptable), a 250-word statement on their take on redefining liberal values, a 250-word summary of the work they would plan to do at the library, and their ideas for a creative writing workshop and evening event. Submitted texts must have been published in English within the last three years. Self-published books are not eligible.
