Words by the Water, the literary festival that runs from March 2nd to 11th, 2012, in Keswick, is offering bursaries of free tickets to 17 to 25 year olds.
This is a quote from their flyer:
"Words by the Water - Festival of Words and Ideas is pleased to offer young people the chance to listen to and engage with a host of prominent writers, politicians, broadcasters and commentators through our Bursary Scheme. If you are passionate about writing and new ideas; excited about art, travel, philosophy, politics and current affairs, or simply seeking inspiration there are lots of reasons to apply.”
The festival takes place at the Theatre by the Lake, in a lovely setting just beside Derwent Water. There are lots of walks, some only a few minutes, others a few hours long. There are also flocks of water birds and a regular ferry up and down the lake.
Some very well-known people will be there. The whole programme can be downloaded as a pdf from the website. The person to contact for an application form is firstname.lastname@example.org.
