The bursary is not open to any type of professional writer. In fact, this is a’ learning opportunity’ for someone who needs an introduction to the travel writing industry and who wants to be driven.

If you’ve been regularly published in commercial forums, articles, magazines or journals, we will find you to be a qualified author. If you receive more than 25% of your income from writing of any kind, we would also find you to be a professional writer.

We wouldn’t find this professional if you had only written a few stories or maintained a travel blog daily.
