Travel Writing Bursary

You can find out more details about previous winners HERE.


As we are not running a Travel Writing retreat this year, the 2018 Bursary will be for a place on our Non-Fiction tutored retreat. It is hoped that this opportunity will support those wanting to develop skills in the genre and enhance their writing practice.

The 2018 Bursary is now closed for submissions.


Kindly donated by Mairi Hedderwick, this bursary will support one place on our Tutored Non-fiction Retreat for a writer working in the travel genre.

The bursary is open to unpublished/published writers living and working in Scotland who have, or would like to have, a travel piece in development.
Please apply by sending:
• A CV which demonstrates that you meet the criteria
• An A4 summary of your writing project that outlines your work in progress.
• A sample of your work (maximum 1000 words, double spaced and single sided)

You can find more details on submitting work through this LINK.

Applications can be submitted from the 5th February with a closing date of Monday 19th March 2018 at 5pm. The successful applicant will be notified soon after.
Applications should be sent by email to: or by post: Moniack Mhor Writers’ Centre, Teavarran, Kiltarlity, IV4 7HT
