We are aiming to support writers who have clear vision for how they want to develop their work over the next year and who have considered how the programme could support and benefit their professional development and the progress of their business. You may be a writer looking to revamp your online brand or to develop a website for the first time in line with progress in your career. In the application procedure you will be asked to specify how you feel participating in the programme will improve and support your work. We expect to support writers who can demonstrate a track record of working professionally as a writer for at least one year and who have existing books, productions, projects or high quality content that the site can be used to promote. When choosing the 15 writers who will participate in this opportunity we will consider inclusivity and equality issues and hope to achieve a good balance of age, gender, ethnicity and socio-economic profile across the writers that we support.
A unique professional development programme for writers and writer/SMEs.
The programme runs throughout April, May and June 2018, both online and with meetings in Newcastle upon Tyne.
We aim to recruit 15 individuals to undertake a programme of professional development to transform the digital side of their business. You will work with peers and a web developer to create a new website for your work/business, receive professional photographic and filming support and work with an industry mentor to develop your work. At the end of the programme all participants will have a completed website, have improved their digital profile and be better equipped to continue to develop their work.
