And in January the BWR will begin taking applications for its week-long residency in Brora, Scotland.
Both emerging and established writers are encouraged to apply. Recent finalists and winners range from those who have yet to conceive of their first manuscripts, to writers who have held Guggenheim Fellowships and Whiting Writers’ Awards, as well as finalists for the National Book Award and numbered in the New Yorker’s “20 Under 40”. Previous winners include Salvatore Scibona, Catherine Wagner, Joshua Cohen, Viccy Adams, Emma Jones, Amity Gaige, and Kyle McCord.
