I've heard that UEA (norwich) has a creative writing course that awards a GBP26,000 fellowship to one student per year on its MA course. What's the chance of getting this? Does anyone know how many fellowships they grant and how many people compete for them? Seriously, good amount of dosh ...what's the catch?

You're talking about this one:

The David T. K. Wong Fellowship

This generous annual award of £26,000 is intended to enable a fiction writer who wants to write in English about the Far East to spend a year developing his or her work while at UEA. The Fellowship is named for its sponsor Mr. David Wong, a retired Hong Kong businessman who has also been a teacher, journalist and senior civil servant, and is a writer of short stories himself. The current Fellow is the Vietnamese-American writer Cab Tran.

Given the amount and the prestige of UEA's MA in Creative Writing, this will be pretty competitive. Only one fellowship is given out each year. I don't think there is a catch but you do have to write about the Far East only, which might be restrictive or not, depending on how you look at it.
