Applications are invited from Irish or Irish-based writers of established reputation across all genres (eg fiction, creative non-fiction, poetry, drama, film) for the Arts Council/ University of Limerick Writer’s Fellowship which is co-funded by the University of Limerick and the Arts Council.

The Fellowship will be tenable either for the period January – June 2017, or, if it suits the Fellow, for the full calendar year January-December 2017, with one introductory session to be undertaken in autumn, 2016. 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 Giles Foden, Donal Ryan and Sarah Moore Fitzgerald.

The Fellow will be a part of UL’s Creative Writing community and will engage with students, staff and faculty in a number of ways. The Fellow will also have the opportunity to develop her/his own work in a supportive environment. The stipend for the Fellowship is euro 20,000.

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 3 referees to our Programme Coordinator for Creative Writing, Claire Ryan,

The closing date for applications will be no later than 12 noon on 26th August, 2016. Interviews will take place approximately one month later, at the University of Limerick.
