Call for Writer in Residence in Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown

Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council invites applications for a writer in residence for the period September 2011 to September 2012.  The writer in residence is a partnership between the Library Service and the Arts Office of the County Council. The residency seeks to support writers in all genres, with the exception of poets as the most recent writer in residence with the Library Service was a poet.

The residency is envisaged as a part-time position which will allow time both for the writer’s own work in addition to engagement and interaction with both the general public and more specifically with those with an interest in writing themselves. The writer in residence will be required to organise a minimum of two high profile public events over the course of the residency.

The closing date for receipt of applications is 12 noon on Wednesday 15 June 2011

A detailed brief is available on www.dlrcoco.ie/library and www.dlrcoco.ie/arts

everything is poetry, when done correctly seemlessly effortlessly.
