Weekend master classes for young Irish language writers
Ealaín na Gaeltacht in conjunction with the Arts Council is organising a weekend of workshops for young writers who have a demonstrated writing skill.
The aim of the workshops is to bring a group of Irish language writers between 18 and 25 years of age together under the guidance of a well-known writer, and to give them the opportunity to focus on developing their work among their contemporaries, in a helpful, inspiring environment.
The workshops will be directed by the acclaimed writers Louis de Paor and Eilís Ní Dhuibhne and they will be heard in the creative sanctuary Cnoc Suain, in an Spidéal over the weekend of 23-25 October 2009.
Ten people will be granted this opportunity.
Send a short C.V. regarding your writing experience and three samples of your work. (prose or poetry)
A qualified panel will select the ten who will take part in the writing weekend.
