The Arts Council has a long-standing partnership with a number of Irish universities offering Writer-in-Residence/Fellowship positions to provide university students of Creative Writing MA and MFA programmes with an opportunity to work with and learn
from a professional author of distinction, and to enable writers to develop their work while in a position of relative financial stability.
The Arts Council Writer in Residence was established to provide a stimulating environment for the resident writer, and afford a degree of financial support to concentrate on their own practice. Additionally, the residency brings energy and dynamism to
the university, and allows students and faculty to engage with a practicing writer for a concentrated period.
Applications are now open for the following Writer in Residence positions:
Writers must apply directly to the University. Closing date for all positions is 5.30pm Thursday 29 October, 2020.
