Cill Rialaig Residencies 2020, Irish Writers Centre
Deadline: Wed 5 Aug 2020
This autumn marks the sixth consecutive year of Irish Writers Centre residencies with Cill Rialaig, Co. Kerry. Open for applications to seven writers across the island of Ireland for a ten-day period from 2 – 12 October 2020.

The seven residencies, two of which will be filled by Northern Irish writers / writers from the north of Ireland, are offered all-inclusively free of charge (the IWC will cover the utility charge for each of the seven houses). Expenses incurred by the selected writers will be food and travel.

Four of the seven residencies will be awarded to professional writers. The other three residencies will be awarded to emerging writers.We encourage writers from backgrounds typically underrepresented in Irish literature to apply. We particularly invite applications from BIPOC, Traveller, and working class writers. 

The purpose of this residency is to give writers the time and space they need to create new work. In addition to their own work, the writers are requested to put aside approximately 2 hours at the start and the end of the residency to come together as a focus group to discuss professional development opportunities that the IWC might undertake in the future.
