    We regret to announce that we cannot proceed any further with the MCNA Writer’s Bursary.

    Following increasing difficulty with administering the bursary, we carefully considered our options and sadly, reached the decision to bring the bursary to an end.

    For those candidates who have applied, we will be writing to you very shortly and returning your administration fee in full. We strongly advise you to email us if you have applied under a pen name.

    We would like to thank everyone who applied, expressed an interest or encouraged our initiative. We are very sorry we cannot proceed any further with the project and we wish all candidates the best of luck with their future creative-writing pursuits.

    If you have any urgent questions please contact the Bursary Administrator, Michelle Sheppard.
