kemakaymaxinedaviesstephenmacklaurenveversjamesrob1Hello! Maxine here. I’m super pleased to announce that I’ve been awarded some funding from the Northern Rock Foundation Talent Development Fund to develop Maybe Later. The help and support from NRF and New Writing North is enabling us to set up our new podcast, and to print the next issue of our zine (call out for submissions currently open!).

Here’s my official quote:

“The Northern Rock Foundation Talent Development Fund has helped developed my project by enabling me to acquire the resources and software necessary to set this up, and by providing me with access to the guidance and expertise of the team at New Writing North who are helping me to develop my project. I am absolutely euphoric to have been awarded funding from the Northern Rock Foundation Talent Development Fund; it is an incredible opportunity which will benefit my future career and will hopefully open up further opportunities in years to come.”
