University's scholarship for would-be writers

A new postgraduate scholarship worth £5,000 has been launched at the University of East Anglia in Norwich.

The Onoto Creative Writing Scholarship will enable a student to study for the MA in Creative Writing at UEA.

The scholarship is open to all applicants to the Prose Fiction and Poetry strands of the MA, whose writing demonstrates a commitment to environmental themes.

The first scholarship will be awarded in September 2013.
