Purpose of the award
The purpose of the English Language Literature Bursary Award is to support professional artists in the field of literature in English, with a focus on more established artists.
The award seeks to provide mid-career and established writers and picture-book illustrators with the time and resources to think, research, reflect, create and write. It enables writers and picture-book illustrators to concentrate on their creative work for a period of time, usually by releasing them from their financial commitments.
The Literature team held an information Clinic, hosted by Words Ireland, on the Literature Bursary Award - English Language on the 12 January last via zoom. The recording of this information session can be found on the Words Ireland YouTube channel here.
Guidelines will be available mid-May.
