Short Story Writing
Of the literary arts, the short story has always been the least honoured, trailing into position of a humble fourth after novels, plays and poetry. or With more prizes and even UK festival devoted to the art form in addition to the recent success of writers such as Jhumpa Lahiri and Etgar Keret there are signs that the form may be about to come into a new prominence. Let's hope it continues.
Editor of Prospect Magazine
With such a long history in the UK of brilliant makers, Ceramics is, without doubt, an important artform to support. In spite of waning government support for training in ceramics, there have been wonderful developments highlighting the artform such as the V&A ceramics wing and the British Ceramics Bienniale in Stoke. This is the third year the Ceramics fellowship will be awarded.
