Bursaries from Acadmi 2011
If you've ever wondered just how you'll manage to finish that novel, collection of poetry or creative non-fic while negotiating the burdens of the day job or childcare, consider applying for an Academi bursary to 'buy time' for writing - applications are now open. The process is a competitive one - weighing up need with talent - but bursaries are available for unpublished writers, as well as those who are well established in the field. The scheme has an excellent track record for spotting and supporting talent, with many past recipients going on to publish acclaimed works as a result. You must be permanently resident in Wales for the proposed duration of the bursary in order to apply. Visit the website here
