Wigtown Book Festival and visual art and craft event Spring Fling are seeking to appoint a writer-in-residence at Spring Fling (May 2015). The writer appointed will also be expected to take part in Wigtown Book Festival 2015. 

 

This will be the first year that Wigtown Book Festival has worked with Spring Fling to offer an opportunity for a writer-in-residence at the May open-studios events. This new initiative - supported by the Dumfries & Galloway Regional Commissioning Fund - follows a successful joint artist-in-residence scheme run by the two organisations since 2009. 

 

The new residency is intended to deepen the creative relationship between the two organisations and to appeal to audiences of both events.

 

Closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 8th December 2014.
