Word Factory Apprentice Award

The Word Factory Apprentice Award is open until February 7, 2019.

Open to short story writers based in the North who have not yet published a full-length work of fiction (either novels or short story collections). Previously self-published writers and published authors from other genres such as non-fiction and poetry may apply.

The Word Factory Northern Apprentice will receive: mentoring from writer Carys Davies; a £1000 bursary from New Writing North; a year’s free access to all Word Factory events and masterclasses; and the opportunity to be considered for publication opportunities with Comma Press, alongside developmental support from Comma staff. As a part of the programme, the winning writer will join an established writing community and have the chance to read a showcase event in London.

Submit a short story of up to 2000 words and answer the application questions on the website. More here.
