Deadline: 12 noon on Wednesday 27th April 2016
Access, at agreed times, to a room on the top floor of dlr LexIcon. It is a requirement of the residency that the writer spend at least 10 hours a week working in dlr LexIcon.
The residency is open to writers working in any genre (e.g. fiction, non-fiction, poetry, script-writing, etc).
The residency this year will focus on the theme of Creativity and will have a particular emphasis on writing for 8-18 year olds.
The writer’s work may draw inspiration from this theme in a variety of ways. The residency is envisaged as a part-time residency which will allow time for the writer’s own work in addition to engagement and interaction with both the general public and, more specifically, with children and/or young people and potentially a range of schools in the county.
