Cill Rialaig residency

Cill Rialaig arts centre in Co Kerry is more aimed at visual artists but some writers do visit. There is a call currently from the Irish Writers Centre but I do believe you can apply separately, for instance if the dates don't suit. It's very beautiful, by all accounts, but pretty remote.

The Irish Writers residencies are now open for applications to seven writers for a ten-day period from 21–31 October. The seven residencies are offered all-inclusively free of charge (the IWC will cover the utility charge for each of the seven houses). Expenses incurred by the selected writers will be food and travel. In addition, the writers are requested to put aside approximately 2 hours at the start and the end of the residency to come together in the Seannachai's house to meet and discuss a programming or development idea that the IWC might undertake in the future. Details to be finalised in due course.

At present, this residency is open only to professional members of the Irish Writers Centre which costs €50.

Deadline Wednesday 1 June at 5pm.
