‘Fresh Ink’ is a new National Library of Scotland initiative to
support and develop emerging literary talent.
Led by poet, writer and creative practitioner Nadine Aisha
Jassat, the initiative is calling on applicants to pitch their
proposed response to the theme ‘my experience of 2020’.
A panel will award up to 10 emerging writers a bursary of £1000
in exchange for their work. Commissioned pieces will be added to
the national collections.
The Library is particularly keen to hear from LGBTQ+ and BAME
writers, women, writers from all socio-economic backgrounds and
writers with disabilities. Applicants must be aged 18 and over and
resident in Scotland. Applications close on 4 January 2021.
See the Fresh Ink initiative page for
further important dates and information on how to apply.
