Deadline: Monday 1 February 2021, 12 noon
Applications can only be made online
How to apply
Applications can only be made online.
You can apply below.
Postal and email submissions will not be accepted.
You will be requested to attach these THREE documents:
- Two Year Writing History:
Please submit a statement (200 words max) describing your writing in the last two years. This is your opportunity to also tell us about any projects you have been involved in, particular successes/failures, and how your writing has developed.
- Examples of your writing:
Please submit up to three examples of your creative writing.
Your submission should total no more than 3,000 words – this is 3,000 words for all three examples, not 3,000 words each.
These can be stories, extracts, poems, scenes or creative prose. Please submit these typed, but do not include your name anywhere in the pieces of writing as these will be reviewed anonymously.
Performance poets and spoken word artists: please submit at least one of your writing examples as an audio or video file.
- Statement of Demonstrable Need
Please submit a short statement (200 words max) about yourself, explaining why you would like to be part of Room 204, what you hope to gain from it and why you need our support to develop your writing.
Please fill in as many boxes as you can. Boxes with a red asterisk cannot be left blank.
Terms & Conditions
Room 204 is not a creative writing course. It is a development programme during which writers will be offered advice and guidance. The programme will not offer direct commentary on writing and will not publish or represent writers.
Copyright, as in all cases with programmes of this nature, remains with the writer.
We regret that students currently doing a Creative Writing BA, MA or PhD are not eligible to enter.
Please be patient during the judging process. We expect a large volume of applications and may not be able to write directly to everyone who applies. Please be assured that if you are shortlisted or successful, we will get in touch with you.
The judges’ decision is final and we will not enter into discussions about the outcome of your submission.
We regret that we cannot return anything submitted with this application.
