CALL OUT FOR A WRITER IN RESIDENCE BASED IN OR FROM TIPPERARY AND INCLUDING THE LOUGH DERG REGION


Dromineer Literary Festival in association with Nenagh Arts Centre is seeking proposals for a writer in residence for this year’s festival (2-7 October 2018). Based in the Arts Centre, the writer in residence will have access to a quiet writing space for the duration.  


The project is envisaged as a one week residency (applicants must be available from October 2 – 7). We are particularly interested in writers who can work creatively to engage the local community, work with and encourage the imaginations of adults, young readers and writers as well as develop his/her own work. 


DLF aims to create an environment in which contemporary literary arts can be celebrated and appreciated by the widest possible public; to provide opportunities for creative dialogue between artists and audiences in an intimate, inclusive environment, through an artistic programme that stimulates, provokes and entertains; to champion local writers and nurture creative literary expression to enrich the lives of the people of Tipperary and surrounding counties.
