The Isle of Arran is famous as a home for Artists, Musicians and Writers and the Arran Brewery. To celebrate this wealth of talent and their love of good beer, Arran Brewery is offering new Authors, Writers and Composers, throughout the UK, a chance to share in the proceeds of a new beer to celebrate the islands talent.
The sponsorship is open to any entrepreneurial writer, composer or artist that has shown determination in bringing their creation to life. The sponsorship is worth over a £1,000 and will be given in the form of consultancy on marketing their creations, a creative break in the Isle of Arran Brewery Guesthouse or Loch Earn Brewery Hotel and Visitor Centre to get their creative juices flowing, the sale of their work in our brewery shop and the purchasing of their work to get them off to a flying start.
The 2016 inaugural writer being sponsored is Caroline Wedd who has written her first novel ‘The Walnut Tree’ and published it herself both on Amazon Kindle and in hard copy.
Managing Director Gerald Michaluk said “Caroline is a gifted writer and her work has all the hallmarks of a best seller. It has been a great joy to assist, in this small way, her journey to becoming a best selling author”.
The Walnut Tree is a gritty family saga with a strong rural element.
The eBook (£4.99)is available from Amazon Kindle store; the paperback book (£8.99)can be ordered from www.thewalnuttree.co
The Arran Brewery is proud to offer our support to this talented writer; Caroline Wedd, who wrote the book in a shed at the bottom of her garden while bringing up her three children.
The brewery has purchased 100 copies of ‘The Walnut Tree’ and will be featuring it in our shop on Arran.
This programme replaces our ad-hoc sponsorship and will focus on new talent.
A beer will be launched similar to our successful programme of supporting Red Squirrel charities with our “Arran Red Squirrel” ale.
Artists, Writers and Composers wishing to be considered for Sponsorship should write in the first instance to the Brewery marking their envelope “Artist, Writer or Composer”. Regrettably we will not acknowledge applications and it is our intention to announce our sponsorship annually. The package of support will vary depending upon the stage and needs of those being sponsored.
