The deadline for applying for one of our three Bursary places is midnight tonight! Two places available for a low-income writer and one available for a writer who identifies as disabled.
Please don’t hesitate to apply. A bursary covers accommodation and some meals and a Festival Pass to get into most events. Please see our previous post for more information http://www.kendalpoetryfestival.co.uk/update-to-our-opening-doors-project-3-places-now-available/
To apply email the following in ONE document to firstname.lastname@example.org
1. Please send in one document with your name, date of birth and email address and a short biography (100 words)
2. A 200 word statement outlining why it would be difficult for you to attend without a bursary and how you would benefit from the opportunity.
3. Contact details of a referee – someone who knows your work and knows you personally.
4. If you are applying for the place at the Castle Green Hotel, please make this clear in your application, and outline your specific access needs. This place is open for writers who identify as having a disability as defined by Disability Rights UK: A physical or mental impairment that has a substantial and long-term adverse effect on your ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities.
Deadline for submission is May 31st. Decisions will be made by mid-June and results announced on this website.
