The 2019 Writer in Residence Programme Launch
The Charles Causley Trust is pleased to announce two more residency opportunities at Cyprus Well, in Launceston, Cornwall (the poet’s former home owned by the Trust). These residencies, co-funded by Literature Works, will follow in the footsteps of such writers/poets as Alyson Hallett, Isobel Galleymore, Karen Hayes, Cahal Dallat and our most recent 2018 WIR’s, David Devanny and Jen Hadfield.
The two 2019 residencies, each of 3 months duration, are for writers interested in literary links to Charles Causley and Cornwall, as part of our larger, two year project entitled Fuelling the Flame. This project is grant aided by Arts Council England with significant support from Cornwall Council, Launceston Town Council, and the University of Plymouth.
Fuelling the Flame runs for two years from February 2018 and, in addition to the residencies programme, will support a wide range of events and activities to promote Causley’s legacy and engage with the local and wider community.
Please see the attached advert for full details of the residency programme and how to apply. The terms and conditions of the residency programme can also be accessed below. The closing date for applications is midnight on Monday 11th March.
