The Wordsworth Trust Seeks Poet in Residence From any Cultural Background
Details:
The Wordsworth Trust is seeking a new Poet in Residence, to run for 9 months from July 2010 to end March 2011. (The residency may be extended to a year pending confirmation of further funding from Arts Council England.)

This Residency offers an invaluable opportunity for a published poet, from any cultural background and writing within any literary tradition, to spend time in Grasmere, Cumbria, in the heart of the Lake District, an area of outstanding natural beauty that so much inspired William Wordsworth. The poet will be given space to develop their own work and will also take part in the Wordsworth Trust Literature Programme and the wider cultural life of Cumbria.

The Poet in Residence will be paid a monthly stipend of £1000, and provided with a cottage for which they will be charged a subsidised rent. For full details, and application procedure contact Andrew Forster on A.Forster@wordsworth.org.uk or 015394 35544. Closing date for applications 5.00pm Friday 5th March 2010.
