Recommended Writer Details
For example, this may be because they identify as a writer of colour, an LGBTQ+ writer, a disabled writer, or because they identify as working-class, or come from a lower socio-economic background, or because they live and work outside London, or for another reason.
This should address the writer’s eligibility for election to the Fellowship, taking into consideration the literary merit of their work and their contribution to British literature
