Writer in Residence for Dorset Libraries with The Arts Development Company open for applications (paid)

Dorset Library Service, in partnership with The Arts Development Company is delivering a new programme of arts development in two Dorset libraries.  The programme is called Libraries as Cultural Hubs and has received funding from Arts Council England and The National Lottery. We are seeking experienced and socially engaged professional writers who can offer exciting and inclusive residencies. Applications are welcomed from one or more areas of creative writing, for example poetry, script-writing, fiction etc. and from writers at different stages of their careers.

There are two separate residency opportunities:

Gillingham Library Residency (January – March 2019)

  • Location: Gillingham Library, Dorset
  • Target Audience: Adults.

Weymouth Library Residency (January – March 2019)

  • Location: Weymouth Library, Dorset
  • Target Audience: Adults

Responses for both residencies should include participatory sessions/workshops, and may include some outreach to existing community groups (e.g. local schools, residential homes etc).  They seek proposals that take an inclusive approach to ensure participatory sessions can welcome anyone regardless of their abilities.

The total fee available for each individual residency is £3000, to include travel and materials.

How to apply: the full brief for both residencies and details of how to apply are available on request from Hannah Baker: hannah@theartsdevelopmentcompany.org.uk
