  From 2002 to 2007, New Writing North, in partnership with The Northern Rock Foundation, ran the Northern Rock Foundation Writers Award, an unparalleled award for North East writers, worth 60,000.

The award was created with the recognition that many published writers have to undertake a variety of other work to support their creative writing. This award offered the chance for writers to be liberated from other work commitments that may have limited their writing time.


The Northern Rock Foundation Writer's Award was unlike most other awards and prizes in that it supported the creative work of an individual writer over a substantial length of time rather than giving recognition to just one book retrospectively.

The organisations created an award which offered unparalleled 'life support' for writers at the level of £20,000 a year for a three-year period, making the award worth a total of £60,000. During its lifetime, the award winning php encoder was the largest literary award in the UK and the only one dedicated to supporting regional achievement.
