Ebedi Writers' Residency

Applications are hereby invited for the next edition of the above named program scheduled to commence in August 2011. The residency which is in its fourth session is situated in Iseyin, Oyo State, Nigeria.
Interested creative writers must send in their CV, the names and contacts of two referees who must be published authors as well as a 2 page synopsis of a work in progress to be completed during the program before July 10 2011.
The residency is a 6-8 week full board program in a serene and private environment. The stipend to successful candidates will also include cost of return local transport to Iseyin.
All previous applicants who have not been invited to the residency should please endeavour to apply.
Successful candidates will be expected to spend about four hours every week with secondary school students in Iseyin in any area of their interest.
Manuscripts completed at the end of the program will be considered for publishing possibilities by a well established Nigerian publisher.
I am not quite sure about the exact address you should send completed applications to. I do know that you can contact Wale Okediran for enquiries-waleokediran@yahoo.co.uk.
