Announcing the 2013 Kobo Writing Life Scholarship
Hot on the heels of our wildly successful Jeffrey Archer Short Story Challenge, Kobo Writing Life and Curtis Brown Creative are partnering once again – this time giving three writers the chance to take courses run by Curtis Brown Creative, the agency’s unique creative writing school. The scholarship is aimed at talented writers without the financial means to attend a Curtis Brown Creative course, and will provide one fully-paid place on each of 3 courses to run at Curtis Brown’s London offices over the next year.
Admissions are based on a writing sample, and the Curtis Brown Creative team will award the scholarship to the writer whose material shows the greatest potential and who can demonstrate financial need.
Further scholarship places will be offered on the 3-Month Novel-Writing course (Sept-Dec 2013) and the 6-Month Novel-Writing course (Feb-July 2014) – applications for those courses aren’t yet open, but more details will be available on the Curtis Brown Creative website soon – and we’ll certainly let you know when they are!
Kobo Writing Life and Curtis Brown Creative are both dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in writing and are united in our goal of helping aspiring writers learn not only the craft of writing but the ins and outs of the publishing industry. We couldn’t be more excited about helping three talented authors who couldn’t otherwise take advantage of such a fantastic opportunity.
