Applying for a Writer’s Bursary? Here are some insider tips from our Writer Development Manager:

Do read the 2020 Writers’ Bursaries guidelines before completing your application form.

Don’t rush your application. Do allow yourself enough time to complete the 2020 Writers’ Bursaries application form and prepare your supporting documents.

Do check your application form before submitting – look out for any errors or omissions


Thinking of applying for a Bursary but not sure what to submit?

Do select your best work in progress. It’s a competitive process, and your work needs to shine / stand out from the crowd / grab the attention of the Bursaries Panel

Do edit, polish and hone your work in progress. It may be a first draft, but it should be presented in a professional manner.

Do choose a clear font, and use black ink.

Don’t leave your application until the last minute, during the final hour on the closing date…
