 Dear all,

Applications are now open for the David Almond Fellowships in Children's
Literature, which support research on Seven Stories' archive collections.
As most of you already know, these include the archive of one Diana Wynne
Jones. You need to be a 'bona fide researcher', but you don't have to be
affiliated with an academic institution. I hope these might enable some
list member or other to make the trip!
Best,

Lucy

*DAVID ALMOND FELLOWSHIPS*

*FOR RESEARCH IN CHILDREN’S LITERATURE 2013*

Newcastle University’s School of English Literature, Language and
Linguistics and Seven Stories, National Centre for Children’s Books are
pleased to announce that the application process for 2013 David Almond
Fellowships is now open.

*Further particulars*

The awards recognise both David Almond’s contribution to children’s
literature and his connections with these partner institutions: he is a
patron of Seven Stories and an honorary graduate of Newcastle University.
The Fellowships aim to promote high-quality research in the Seven Stories
collections that will call attention to their breadth and scholarly
potential. The two awards of £300 each are to facilitate a research visit
to the Seven Stories collections in Newcastle upon Tyne, UK of at least
three days by a bona fide researcher working on a relevant project.
Applications
will be considered from candidates in any academic discipline. The
successful applicants will have a clearly defined project that will benefit
from having access to the Seven Stories collections. All applicants should
consult the Seven Stories catalogue as part of preparing their
applications: http://www.sevenstories.org.uk/collection/.  A well-developed
dissemination strategy will be an advantage. Priority will be given to the
importance of the project and best use of the Seven Stories collections as
judged by a senior member of the Children’s Literature Unit in the School
of English Literature, Language and Linguistics at Newcastle University and
a senior member of the Collections team at Seven Stories.

*Eligibility and Applications*

Applications are being accepted until  1 February, 2013. For more details
