Our friends at The Writing Platform have launched a bursary of £4000 for teams of writers and technologists to embark on a writing (or writing-related) collaboration over a period of three months. The bursary is open to UK residents aged 18 and over.
An original work that makes creative use of technology to push the boundaries of storytelling or the written form.
A project that seeks to address an issue of interest to the wider writing community, for example the dissemination of work or reader engagement.
We expect, and encourage, projects to evolve through the collaborative working process. At application stage we are looking for strong ideas and a desire to forge a genuine partnership.
