A new award has been established in memory of writer Kevin Elyot, whose work spanned from Poirot to My Night With Reg.
The Kevin Elyot Award creates a writer in residency post that allows the recipient access to the University of Bristol Theatre Collection, where Kevin Elyot’s own archive is contained.
The Prize: The Award supports a residency of up to four weeks to support a writer in developing their work, using the Kevin Elyot Archive and other holdings within the collection to create a new artistic or academic work.
The financial award of £3,000 is designed to support a stipend towards living expenses, materials, and dissemination of the project.
What to submit: Full details about the award and submission process can be found below:
Applicants should submit:
- A written proposal about how you’d like to respond to the archive, the work you’d like to produce, and the form of the eventual product (1,000 words maximum)
- A brief CV (2 pages maximum)
- A brief project plan outlining budget, timescale, dissemination plans, and outcomes (1 page maximum)
