Cove Park residencies 2018
Cove Park is pleased to announce an open call
for applications to its Crafts, Literature and Visual Arts
programmes in 2018. These residencies are funded and will take
place between May and September next year.
In 2018 Cove Park will award a minimum of three funded
Literature Residencies for writers established in
their field of between one to three months each. National (UK) and
international artists are welcome to apply to this programme. For
the Literature Residencies applications are invited from
established writers in any of the following genres: adult fiction,
memoir, poetry, biography. Writers who cross or combine these
genres are also welcome to apply. To be eligible, writers should
have published, with a traditional publisher, at least one book.
Writers who are established with a strong track record in one genre
and wish to develop or experiment in another where they are not
established are welcome to apply.
In addition Cove Park will offer a four-week residency for an
Emerging Writer based in Scotland. Applicants for
the Scottish Emerging Writer residency need not have published a
book, but must show exceptional promise.
Cove Park will also offer a minimum of one funded
Translation Residency of four weeks. Applicants to
the Translation Residency should have a commission to translate a
Scottish book into their chosen language. 'Scottish' means the
author who may be living or dead, was born or lives/has lived in
Scotland, or the book takes Scotland as its central subject, or is
published by a publisher based in Scotland.
Please note, the Residencies take place during May to September
2018 - within this period residency dates are negotiable.
Apply by Monday 11 December 2017.
