Please note: the closing date for receipt of applications has been extended to 12 noon on 26 October
Applications are invited from Irish writers of established reputation across all genres (e.g. fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama, film), jointly funded by the Arts Council and University of Limerick.
The Writer in Residence will be a part of UL's Creative Writing community and will engage with students, staff and faculty in a number of ways. The Writer in Residence will also have the opportunity to develop her/his own work in a supportive environment. The stipend for the residency is €20,000.
The residency will be tenable for the full calendar year January–December 2018. It may be possible, by agreement, for the successful candidate to undertake a shorter residency, with a reduced stipend.
The Creative Writing programme at UL is led by Professor Joseph O'Connor and is taught by a number of acclaimed writers, including novelists Professor Sarah Moore Fitzgerald, Professor Giles Foden and Donal Ryan.
Interested candidates are invited to submit a covering letter outlining areas of interest, teaching experience (if any), ideas for engagement with UL's Creative Writing programme, and a full CV to include the name and contact details of three referees to our Programme Coordinator for Creative Writing, Niamh O’Sullivan: firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date: 12 noon on 26 October, 2017.
Interviews will be held in the Arts Council, Dublin approx one month after the closing date.
