MA in Writing Poetry Scholarship 2020 Now Open For Entries

We’re delighted to announce that, for the second year running, Newcastle University is offering a scholarship award worth £7,800 (full fees) for an outstanding applicant to the Poetry School / Newcastle MA in Writing Poetry for 2020/21 entry.

The Scholarship will be awarded on a competitive basis to applicants who have already accepted an offer of a place for 2020/21 entry on the MA Writing Poetry. (Note: there is still time to get your application in for a place on the MA programme, and you will usually receive a response within two to three weeks.) We will also consider awarding two 50% scholarships where there are two equally outstanding applicants.

This accredited MA uniquely combines masterclasses, workshops, and individual teaching with a core footing in the professional poetry world, encompassing all aspects of creative practice.  There is expert tuition from nationally and internationally renowned poets: Glyn Maxwell and Tamar Yoseloff (London); Tara Bergin, W.N. Herbert, Sinéad Morrissey, and Jacob Polley (Newcastle). Students come together for a one-week summer school in July, alternating between the two cities each year.

Applicants should have an achieved or predicted first-class or high 2.1 undergraduate degree or, where relevant, a lower qualification with professional practice that provides equivalent academic and research skills. 

ContactSarala Estruch (London) or Melanie Birch (Newcastle).

Deadline for applications: 31 July 2020, 5pm
