Charles Wallace India Trust Fellowship in Creative Writing

Via University of Chichester

The University of Chichester is delighted to have been selected by the Charles Wallace India Trust to offer a Writer’s Fellowship.

The University has joined an elite group of institutions who cooperate with the Charles Wallace India Trust, to welcome an Indian writer to the UK and provide them with an opportunity to spend time at a British university, devoting themselves to their own writing and contributing to the life of the host institute.

The successful applicant will be based in the English and Creative Writing Department at the University of Chichester. The institution has a thriving literary community, with an annual programme of talks by leading writers, editors and agents. Many of its students have gone on to publish their work with leading UK publishers. Its academic staff are highly qualified and experienced individuals, many of whom are practising and published poets, novelists and dramatists.

Who is the fellowship for?

The fellowship is awarded by the University of Chichester and the Charles Wallace India Trust to an individual who:

  • Is an Indian citizen, domiciled and resident;
  • Has completed university-level education in the field of literature and/or has between five and seven years of professional experience;
  • Has a clear proposal stating what they plan to do at the University of Chichester and how they hope to use the experience on their return to India;
  • Has not been given a Charles Wallace India Trust grant within the previous five years.
How to apply

Applications will be invited from 1 May to a deadline of 30 September 2010. A shortlist of candidates will be agreed in November. The Fellow will begin work at the University from March or April 2011 (to be confirmed).
