This annual award was established in 2013 by Creative Scotland to honour Dr Gavin Wallace for his stoic passion and commitment to supporting the Scottish Literature Community.
Moniack Mhor Writers Centre is inviting established writers to apply for the Dr Gavin Wallace Fellowship 2014/15. In hosting the Fellowship, the organisation would like to explore the theme of Place and its effect on Personal Identity. The focus for the year would be the creation of a fictional work that explores these themes.
The successful candidate will receive time and resources to develop their practice. This includes a stipend of £20,000. Other possible support includes residential courses, retreats and mentoring. These are not compulsory and the final terms of the Fellowship will be agreed by the successful candidate and Moniack Mhor.
The fellowship is open to established writers living and working in Scotland. To be eligible for the fellowship applicants must have published at least one novel, one short story collection, one poetry pamphlet or had one professional production of their work staged.
Please apply by sending:
A CV which demonstrates that you meet the criteria.
An A4 summary of your writing project that addresses the theme of Place and its effect on personal identity
A sample of your work (maximum 1000 words)
The deadline for application is 5pm Thursday the 18th September. Applications should be sent by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post: Moniack Mhor Writers’ Centre, Teavarran, Kiltarlity, IV4 7HT
For any enquiries relating to the fellowship please contact: Rachel Humphries, Centre Director or Cynthia Rogerson, Programming Director.
Interviews, if necessary, will be held on 6th October at Moniack Mhor Writers’ Centre.
