The Writing Platform Bursary is designed to support inter-disciplinary learning and collaboration between writers and technologists. The fund will support two one-off bursaries of £3000 and is intended to encourage experimentation and innovation in digital publishing and the judges will be looking for projects that explore an issue that is relevant to the wider writing community and ideas that make creative use of existing, readily available, digital tools and platforms to achieve their aims.
Each bursary will be allocated to a project team, consisting of one writer and one technologist, who will work on a jointly conceived digital literature project for a period of three months (from 1st April – 30th June 2013).
Applications to the Writing Platform Bursary will be judged by Kate Pullinger, Professor of Creative Writing and Digital Media at Bath Spa University; Joanna Ellis, Associate Director of The Literary Platform and Leila Johnston, creative technologist and Managing Editor of The Literary Platform. The deadline for applications is midday on Tuesday 12th March 2013.
