The Brookleaze Grants support writers (novelists, playwrights, poets, short story writers) who need time away from their normal lives – to take sabbaticals from their jobs, for example, or to travel abroad for research – to write.
A total of £5,000 is available annually, and this may be awarded either as two grants of £2,500 or one grant of £5,000.
To be eligible to apply, a writer must have had work previously published, or have been newly commissioned, by a trade publisher in the UK or produced by a UK theatre.
Application deadline: Monday 2 November 2015
