Residency for Writers at Cove Park in 2013

I just came across this opportunity for writers who like the idea of some quiet space and time to write.  Note, however, that you have to be trad published to apply - they won't accept indie published work.  Grrrr. Don't get me started on that.....Anyway, it may be of interest. The location looks stunning. 

Residency for Writers at Cove Park in 2013

Deadline: January 14th
Applications for the 2013 programme of funded Literature Residencies are welcomed from established writers in Scotland, the UK and internationally

There are two Literature Residencies, of between one and three months each, for Scottish, UK and international writers. These residencies will take place during May to September 2013. Applications are invited from established writers of short and long fiction; poetry; literary non-fiction; work that crosses these genres and also writers who have made their reputation in one field and wish to develop in another. To be eligible for consideration, writers must have published (not self-published) at least one book in their field.

Cove Park exists to provide artists with time, space and freedom to undertake significant research, develop their practice and ideas and produce new work or new ways of working. You will be joining a dynamic community of up to ten artists across all the artforms in Cove Park's unique interdisciplinary setting.  Residents live in Cove Park's self catering cubes, with spectacular views over sea loch and mountains and you receive a weekly fee to defray living costs.
