Ever wanted £18,000 to write a novel ...?

Yes, me too. Which means I must be crazy to tell the rest of you about it. So call me Crazy Kay ...

MCNA is awarding an £18,000 writer's bursary to an aspiring writer (novice or experienced) who would like to dedicate up to 12 months writing a fiction novel. Applicants are invited to write about any subject, so long as it is substantially one of imagination and fiction, and, the writer retains full copyright ownership over their finished work.

The bursary is designed for a writer who would like to work on a novel, however we are accepting applications from writers who would prefer to work on a collection of short stories/novellas.

Comprehensive detail on the bursary, together with information on how to apply and the judging panel is available on our website:
