Gladstone’s Library Writers in Residence program began in 2011. Built in 1902, Gladstone’s Library is the UK’s only residential library. Four residencies are offered each year with each writer staying at the Library for a month. The Writers in Residence are asked to keep a blog about their stay, as well as running a creative writing workshop. Residents receive full room and board, reimbursement for travel expenses and a small stipend of £100 per week. Applications close on 30 April.
