Our Voices: writer development programme
The Our Voices programme from Creative Scotland aims to develop
the writing of emerging writers from under-represented communities
who might not otherwise be able to access this kind of professional
support as they work towards a full draft of their first book and
consider their next steps in building a career as a writer.
This pilot programme will look to support around 40 emerging
writers from under-represented communities. Applications are sought
from those who have begun to write their first book, who are ready
to respond to professional feedback on their writing and would like
an opportunity to discuss their ambitions as writers.
Applications are particularly welcome from unpublished writers
who identify as disabled, LGBTQ+, care-experienced, BAME (Black,
Asian, and Minority Ethnic), and/or from a low-income
Applications for Round 1 close on Friday 12 February 2021. Round
2 will open for applications in May 2021.
