The bursaries for the September festival will include tickets, travel and accommodation

The Brontë Festival of Women's Writing at Brontë Parsonage Museum in Haworth takes place between 20 and 22 September. This year novelist Kit de Waal has programmed events relevant to, and supporting, different voices in breaking though the geographical and social barriers that continue to exist in publishing more than 170 years after the Brontë sisters first published their poems under male-sounding pseudonyms.

People are eligible to apply for a bursary if their personal financial circumstances would otherwise prevent them from attending the Festival.

The closing date to apply is 31 July.

• The Staunch Book Prize is sponsoring two places on the Writing Women in Crime Fiction workshop on 20 September. Apply by 29 August.

For full details see the website.
