Applications are now welcome for Cove Park's summer 2020
programme of funded residencies for writers.
In 2020 Cove Park will award a minimum of three funded
Literature Residencies of between two to six weeks each to take
place during its summer programme (seven residencies were awarded
in the equivalent programme in 2019).
We invite applications from UK-based writers of any genre, who
have published at least one book-length publication (or the
equivalent thereof, e.g. spoken word or drama). We will also award
at least one residency to an emerging writer of any genre based in
Scotland. Emerging writers need not have published a book-length
Furthermore, we will award at least one residency to a literary
translator of any language into English, based in Scotland.
Translators need not have published a book-length translation.
The above residencies will take place during May to September
2020. Within this period, residency dates are negotiable.
Please note: International artists are not
eligible to apply for the above residencies in this round. Cove
Park currently appoints international residents through a
partnership with Varuna, the National Writers' Centre in
Cove Park's summer residency programme provides artists with the
time and support required to focus exclusively upon their own
practice. The emphasis is upon research, experimentation and the
development of new work. The writers will be part of a changing
group of national and international residents specialising in a
wide variety of art forms. All of the artists are invited to take
part in a series of informal studio presentations, readings, talks,
screenings and dinners organised by Cove Park throughout the summer
programme. After completion of their residency, writers may also
have the opportunity to return to Cove Park to contribute to
Hands-On, a public programme of educational and participatory
workshops and events.
