How to apply for (or sponsor) one our Bursaries
We don't want LGBTQ+ writers to be held back due to lack of funds.
We know that our retreats are reasonably priced but we also want to make them accessible for LGBTQ writers who could not otherwise afford to attend.
So if that's you, click the Get In Touch button below and let us know. We'll then ask you for a little more information to help us decide how we can help. We might ask you to send us a small sample of your writing, tell us a bit about your circumstances and what you can afford.
We are able to offer at least one partial or full bursary on every retreat we run. Applications will be evaluated on a case by case basis.
We always get more applications for bursaries than available places.
You can support our bursary programme by making a donation here.
£25 will provide secure a partial bursary to help a writer meet the cost of attending the day.
£45 will fund a full bursary place on a one-day writing retreat.
