In April 2014 selected writers will spend six days at Cove Park: three days of workshops with Birkbeck writing tutor Toby Litt and three days of retreat to develop your own writing. Each student will have his or her own private self-catering accommodation in grounds that overlook Loch Long in the southern Highlands.
To apply, please supply a short covering letter and creative writing sample of no more than 1000 words. Fiction or creative non-fiction only. Deadline for applications is March 14th 2014.
Address your application to: Toby Litt, Birkbeck, University of London, School of Arts, 43 Gordon Square, London WC1H OPD
Or email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
There are only six places available. The cost per person will be £500 for the week. The residency dates are Monday 14th – Saturday 19th April 2014.
