The Young Writers’ Talent Fund is New Writing North Young Writers’ talent development programme. The fund seeks to support emerging and talented young writers aged 16-25 living in the North East. It is now open for applications until Thursday 30 June 2022.

The Young Writers’ Talent Fund provides development opportunities for young creatives working across a range of writing forms and aims to make connections between aspiring writers and producers, and industry professionals.

Through the Talent Fund, we can offer individuals bespoke support, investment, mentoring and training opportunities. You might be looking for direct funding, for example to put on a show or to print a zine. Alternatively, you might apply to the Talent Fund because you are looking for more experience or support in an artform, in which case we would work with you to put together a plan for how funding might be spent.
