CAST is working with the Art Writers Group to support a writer’s residency in West Cornwall. This is an opportunity for an experienced writer to spend time developing new material and to work with a range of organisations and groups.

The Art Writers Group (AWG) is a new association formed by Peter Stiles, Josephine Lanyon and Grace Davies. During 2016 and 2017 Peter Stiles and Josephine Lanyon will run the Art Writers Programme (AWP) in three locations in the South West region, funded by Arts Council England. CAST is working with Tate St Ives and Newlyn Art Gallery & The Exchange to support the West Cornwall Writer Residency programme and will host an event and provide assistance to the appointed writer.

For more information on the residency and application process visit Visual Arts South West website. Deadline for applications is Friday 4 November 2016.
