The British Council is offering six scholarships to British and German writers aged 18-34 with a particular interest in nature writing
The scholarships, which the British Council is running in association with dasumweltinstitut (the Environment Institute), aim to raise the profile of nature writing and will offer young British and German writers the chance to discuss nature writing and develop their own work.
The scholarships will comprise a workshop by Dr Torsten Schäfer and Helen Mort and four months of remote supervision by Dr Torsten Schäfer, and travel and accommodation grants for the British Council Seminar on Nature Writing in Munich (7-9 June) and the scholarship culmination event in Bremen (22-26 October).
To apply, writers should be based in Britain or Germany, have an interest in nature writing and be ambitious to write professionally. Writers already writing professionally are not eligible to apply.
To apply, send 500 words on how you meet the selection criteria, the skills and experience you hope to bring, and what you hope to learn.
The closing date is 3 May.
