It’s such an honour to be awarded a Writers' Bursary by the Scottish Arts Council (now Creative Scotland) on the strength of a work-in-progress to write a new novel.
The Scottish Arts Council recently merged with Scottish Screen to form Creative Scotland, a new public body that supports the arts, screen and creative industries across all parts of Scotland. I am truly grateful to accept this prestigious award which helps to champion, encourage, inspire and promote future talent.
Thank you so much to the Scottish Arts Council for your support and the faith you have shown in my fiction writing.
I really want to make good on this pledge to the new Creative Scotland initiative. I am excited to tell you that I have nearly finished this new novel. I cannot wait to share my story with you.
