These residencies of up to six weeks each are awarded to writers based in Scotland. They offer support to an established writer of poetry, fiction or drama at a critical point in their career, providing opportunities for networking and building connections with other artists and writers, as well as undisturbed and unstructured solitude.

Rodge is using his six-week residency to bring to fruition a number of projects, including a radio play and the editing of his forthcoming novel.
