Two Roads Award

This new award aims to support the development of two talented emerging writers of Fiction and Non-Fiction on low income, who may find fees a barrier to attending a course. Through the generous support of Two Roads, we will be offering two funded places on a week-long course or will support writing activity to a comparable value.
