Katie Fforde Bursary 2019

I'm so delighted to announce that I'm a recipient of The Katie Fforde Bursary 2019.

It's such a huge honour and privilege to receive this award, and know that I am in such great company amongst the fabulous writers who have won previously. Katie seeks to support and encourage unpublished writers each year with her award, and I am so thrilled to be selected as one of this year's recipients.

I had a fantastic weekend in London sightseeing and celebrating with my fantastic friend, Ellie Henshaw. Thank you for my beautiful necklace to commemorate the occasion; I will treasure it forever.

I have met the most amazing and supportive people since I joined the RNA, and I'm so privileged to be part of such an enthusiastic group.

Thank you to all my wonderful friends in the Birmingham Chapter and the whole of the RNA. I'm really grateful for all your kind wishes of support and encouragement.

Thank you all xxx


  1. Thank you for your kind words, Elaina. You are a worthy recipient of Katie's bursary and very deserving of your pendant. May the good vibes from the award reward all your hard work. Ellie Henshaw.
