Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships, Invitation to Apply

Welcome, you have been nominated to apply for the second edition of the Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellowships.

We have developed a longlist of talented individuals working with poetry from across the UK who we are inviting to apply for the three bursaries of £15,000 each. We composed this list by asking nearly 250 nominators from across arts disciplines to put forward artists they believe should be recognised and supported with a Fellowship.

There is no fee to make an application and the closing date for applications is 5pm on Monday 18 March 2019.

The application we require is relatively short and we welcome both written and filmed/recorded submissions.

Nathalie Teitler and Sarah Gibbon will be happy to assist you should you have any access requirements.

Please note that full-time students are not eligible for the Fellowships and all applicants must be resident in the UK.

The Fellowships will begin in July 2019.
