Fellowship in England - DEADLINE NEXT TUESDAY (Jan 31)
« on: January 24, 2012, 01:05:59 AM »
Waay short notice on this, but the fellowship sounds awesome:

http://www.uea.ac.uk/lit/fellowships/charles-pick-fellowship

If you win you get 10,000 and stay for 6 months in Norfolk.  You have to work on a novel (you send them an excerpt of that novel for the application) and check in with some people for your progress.  Attend some seminars.  Housing is included in the award.

OH!  I thought I should mention, since this is the part that will likely prevent me from applying: you need a letter of reference from an agent, editor, or accredited teacher of creative writing.   :-\

Yeah!  I hope I can find someone to recommend me so I have a shot at it (I just edited the explaining you need a reference)

I know Norfolk, I know an editor, I have an excerpt. I think I'm forming an half baked plan.

Congrats!  I'm still writing my excerpt  :)

Just to check - you do mean you mailed it, right?  On one of the pages it says you can't email or fax the application.

I have an excerpt in mind, I'm going to tighten it up tonight and then send a pleading message to an editor.

I figured that was what you meant - I just had visions of that not being the case.   ;D  Best of luck!

best wishes to everybody across the puddle!

(maybe i'll head over there and try for one of those fellowships myself - along with my sisters, i'm Finnish/Canadian/British citizen so barring the sandy bits, pretty much the world is our playground)

I'm going to use my devious mind to get rid of the competition with one horrifying piece of information.

I go to Norwich a lot.
