  From 2002 to 2007, New Writing North, in partnership with The Northern Rock Foundation, ran the Northern Rock Foundation Writer’s 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.
