Your questions answered, in our live Q&A
Are you working on your application? Planning to nominate an emerging writer? In a live-streamed Q&A, the Wheeler Centre's Veronica Sullivan and Sophie Black answered your questions about applying for The Next Chapter.
‘You get money and time to write. Proper money! You get mentoring for a year and all kinds of focused, wise support. No deadlines, no commercial pressures and no one uses that god-awful word “outcomes” … These things are as rare as hen’s teeth at the best of times, and at this moment of amplified precarity and uncertainty, they are unimprovable.’
– Maria Tumarkin, 2019 Next Chapter mentor
