Sligo Writers

Sligo (city and county) is appointing a Writer in residence, mainly to up the creative writing element offered by their libraries, as I read it. (And there was I thinking it was Sligo town!)

The Writer in Residence will endeavour to build upon the tremendous work undertaken by our previous Writer in Residence.

The Writer in Residence will oversee the annual writing competition for second level schools, which is held in conjunction with the Sligo Champion.

Secondly, the Writer in Residence will act to support activities such as creative writing and the promotion of literature as an art form. In addition, the Writer in Residence will be the editor of Sligo Library’s online literary magazine entitled The Cathach for the duration of the residency.

At the heart of this residency is Sligo Library’s main cultural objective to promote reading and in particular an appreciation of literature.

The contract term will be from November 2009 to April 2010.

Deadline: 25th September 2009
