To celebrate the opening of the Central Library and Cultural Centre in Dún Laoghaire in Autumn 2014 Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council invites applications from writers to create a new piece of work that references Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown and/or its inhabitants. This may take the form of any genre including literature, popular fiction, short stories, poetry, screen or script writing, children’s literature, young adult literature, factual writing and journalism. To apply writers must live in, work in, be originally from or have studied in Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown.
It is envisaged that a selection of writers will be commissioned to develop a piece of new work from the entries received while other writers will be invited by direct commission. All the commissioned work will be published in a pamphlet or broadsheet available from the Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown Library Service and online via the County Council website. The writers will also be required to give a brief reading of their work (together with some of the other selected writers) in the Central Library and Cultural Centre.
