Applications are now open for the 2015/2016 Dr Gavin Wallace Fellowship, which will be hosted by the National Library of Scotland.
This award was established in 2013 by Creative Scotland in honour of Dr Wallace, who committed his entire professional life to helping writers and literature organisations in Scotland.
The award is intended to provide one writer with time to develop their work over the course of a year. Applicants are invited to explain how they would engage with the theme of 'the recorded memory of Scotland', grounded in the Library's collections.
Established writers living and working in Scotland are invited to apply. A £20,000 stipend will be awarded to the successful candidate.
The deadline for application is 17.00 on 30 October 2015.
