Constable and Robinson to sponsor the Corsair Bursary

Print
The publisher Constable & Robinson is to sponsor an annual award for a student to study the MA in Creative Writing (Prose Fiction) at UEA. The Corsair Bursary will be worth £5,000 and will be open to students undertaking the course who are aged 25 or younger at the start of the academic year. The recipient will be chosen by a panel from Corsair, the literary imprint of Constable & Robinson, and will be based on the creative material submitted by students for admission to the course. Corsair Publisher James Gurbutt said: ‘With all the changes and new challenges facing fiction publishing right now, it’s reassuring to remember that the fundamentals are as important as ever. We're in the business – or should be – of encouraging exceptional writers, of nurturing talent. UEA’s Creative Writing MA has done just that, for decades. This bursary is intended to reflect our faith in a talented young writer, and to make a real financial difference at the start of a career.’
