At Sea Writers’ Residency open for applications from writers under 30

A twice-yearly writers’ residency based in Margate, Kent, designed to provide a thinking-friendly refuge for young writers. Recipients will have use of a historic two-bedroom seafront flat in Margate, as well as a £250 bursary towards expenses and £50 towards train travel.

Each iteration of the residency will have a different theme: the inaugural theme is novel-writing. Applicants should be in the midst of a novel and will need to submit 5,000 words plus a synopsis with their application.

If you are under 30 and you write, you are eligible to apply for At Sea. However, the theme of the residency will change each time: the first residency (in November 2018) is open to anyone under 30 who is working on a novel; the second (in March 2019) will be open to anyone under 30 who is working on a play. (Poets, memoirists, graphic novelists, screenwriters, biographers, essayists – your time will come!)
