Church Cottage is open. We are delighted that all the residents booked have survived the crisis and will be returning soon. We have some space for new residencies available in August and December 2020, February and March 2021 and beyond. No new bursaries are available for now but the peace, privacy and comfort of Church Cottage is available for mature writers with an interesting project.  See the website page How to Apply or contact Kate McLuskie on FB messenger or e-mail k.mcluskie@bham.ac.uk
