The residency will run from the end of September till December. The writer will spend 2 days per week in the prison for a total of 30 days. The Justice LINC Literacy Co-ordinator, based in the prison, will coordinate and support the project. The residency is open to writers with an established writing practice. We will consider applications from writers in all genres . We encourage writers of graphic novels to apply.

Expressions of interest are due 1 September 2017.
