Un casino en ligne est un excellent moyen de profiter d’une variété de jeux avec un risque minimal. Contrairement aux casinos physiques, ces jeux sont exploités par des programmes informatiques et il n’y a pas d’interaction humaine impliquée. Les joueurs peuvent pratiquer leurs compétences avant de jouer avec de l’argent réel. Il est important de choisir un site de bonne réputation afin que vous puissiez être sûr que vous ne perdez pas d’argent. Cet article explore les différents types de casinos en ligne et comment ils diffèrent les uns des autres. Pour plus d’informations, lisez sur.

Pour trouver le meilleur casino en ligne, lisez d’abord la section de révision. Cette section devrait inclure des examens des casinos en ligne et de leurs processus d’assurance qualité. Il est important de connaître la qualité d’un casino en ligne. Assurez-vous qu’ils adhèrent aux normes de jeu équitables et ont la plate-forme la plus moderne disponible. S’ils ne le font pas, regardez ailleurs. Certains casinos en ligne n’offrent pas de service à la clientèle. Contactez le service clientèle et demandez-leur si elles peuvent faire un meilleur travail.

The Breakthrough Crime & Thriller Scholarship

This scholarship will award a talented writer of limited financial means a place on our new Writing Crime & Thrillers – Advanced course.

The Breakthrough Crime & Thriller Scholarship will provide the full course fee for a writer with limited financial means to study on our new Writing Crime & Thrillers – Advanced online course led by Theakstons Crime Novel of the Year award-winning author Sarah Hilary. The course will run from 21 March to 30 May 2022.

This scholarship is part of the Breakthrough Writers’ Programme, our outreach programme which offers opportunities to under-represented writers. We aim to promote diversity in our student groups and to enable talented writers to join our courses who we might not otherwise have heard from.

If you have the desire to write, a great idea for a crime novel or psychological thriller and a compelling voice – and if you’re a writer without the financial means to attend a Curtis Brown Creative course, this scholarship opportunity is for you.

Course details


The scholarship is open to crime and thriller writers over the age of 18, who fulfil our low-income eligibility criteria.

Applicants must fulfil our financial criteria:

  • Unmarried and not co-habiting with a partner, with an annual (gross, pre-tax) income of less than £25,000 and personal savings of less than £5,000.
  • Married or co-habiting with a partner, with a total annual (gross pre-tax) household income of less than £35,000 and personal savings (jointly or individually) of less than £5,000.

If you don’t quite fit our financial criteria but are nonetheless financially challenged, then do apply, explaining your circumstances in the form.


Curtis Brown Creative offers places on our courses on the basis of proven writing ability. We ask applicants to send us the first 3,000 words of a novel in progress, with a one-page synopsis, and to fill out our application form.  Please note that those with the financial means to attend our courses should not apply to this scholarship. 

This scholarship will be awarded to the applicant whose submission material shows the greatest potential and promise in our view. The decision will be made by the Curtis Brown Creative team.

Head to the blog for tips and advice on preparing your application material. 


  • Applicants to the Breakthrough Crime & Thriller Scholarship must fulfil our eligibility criteria. Our form asks you to make a statement about your financial income and the reason you deserve this fully funded opportunity.
  • With respect to the earnings thresholds set out in our eligibility section: for salaried applicants, your current salary at date of application must be under the threshold. For self-employed applicants, your gross pre-tax profits (average figure for the last two financial years) must be under the threshold. State benefits such as jobseeker’s allowance should be counted as income.
  • Applicants may be asked to provide proof of their financial circumstances in support of their scholarship applications.
  • Because the scholarships are open only to those who do not have the means to attend the applicable course without financial assistance, applicants should bear in mind that their application will be considered only for the scholarship places and not for other fee-paying places on the courses.

Our application process is simple, and we encourage all writers meeting the eligibility criteria to apply.

Please apply with the first 3,000 words of the crime or thriller novel you’d like to work on during the course, and a synopsis of no more than a page (both need to be in the same document, as you can only upload ONE file in the application below).
