Opportunities for Writers

Brimham Rocks Writer-in-Residence 2024

The National Trust in partnership with Word Up North is seeking a Writer-in-Residence for Brimham Rocks, near Pateley Bridge in North Yorkshire. The site’s mysterious and awe-inspiring rock formations are a magnet for geologists, naturalists, climbers, walkers and young families.

The writer will research and develop original work inspired by Brimham Rocks’ natural environment and its people; create and run workshops for aspiring nature writers; and work with local primary school children to help them create their own written responses to site. The residency will take place over 5 months from June – October 2024 and will culminate in a public event to share the work created through the programme.

We will invite shortlisted candidates for interview on Tuesday 4 June 2024.
