University of Limerick Writer’s Fellowship

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, claire.ryan@ul.ie  


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