Set up by Creative Scotland to honour arts administrator Dr Gavin Wallace, who died in 2013, and running for the second time, the Gavin Wallace Fellowship is hosted by Monaick Mhor. The theme of this year's Fellowship is place and its effect on personal identity, and the focus would be the creation of a fictional work that explores those themes. The successful candidate will receive time and resources to develop their practice, including a stipend of £20,000 and possible residential courses, retreats and mentoring.
To be eligible to apply, writers must live and work in Scotland, and should have published at least one novel, or short story collection or poetry pamphlet, or had one professional production of their work staged.
The closing date for applications is 18 September.
