Aspiring writers are being urged to apply for a prestigious scholarship programme.
This year the University of East Anglia (UEA) is offering eight donor-funded postgraduate scholarships on its creative writing programme.
Co-director Henry Sutton said: 'Our aim is to widen opportunity for the most talented writers, which is why scholarships in this field are so important.
'Our aim is to nurture the greatest talent, not just from the UK but worldwide. Some scholarships are aimed specifically at international students, one is directed at students from the Republic of Ireland, and others are open to anyone.'
The programme was founded in 1970 by novelists and former UEA professors Sir Malcolm Bradbury and Sir Angus Wilson, and well-known alumni who regularly return to speak to students.
