Call for 2023 Arts Council Writer in Residence
The Arts Council and University College Dublin invite applications from mid-career and established writers for Writer in Residence for the calendar year 2023.
The Arts Council Writer in Residence programme was established to provide a stimulating environment for the resident for the 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.
The Writer in Residence will be invited to engage with the UCD community, including undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as staff. The Writer in Residence will be expected to have a visible presence on campus, and to facilitate activities focused on creative writing which may include workshop facilitation and guest appearances in the School’s literature pathways. The Writer in Residence will also be expected to deliver at least one public talk/reading, and to contribute to an annual UCD Creative Writing Conference.
Applications must be received by 5.30pm on Thursday the 29th of September 2022.
Full details about the residency, eligibility, how to apply, and the assessment process, can be found at the Arts Council website.
