Writers' Residency Week
Tin Jug Studio, Birr, County Offaly, October 2014 
Applications are sought for a new Writers' Residency based in County Offaly. This residency in the Georgian town of Birr offers an opportunity for professional writers to take a short break from daily routines and focus on their writing. It is aimed at those who feel the need to re-invigorate themselves and work towards the completion of current work or for writers who simply need inspiration, through a change of place and stimuli.

The bursary includes one week's accommodation in one of the period rooms of the guest house with breakfast and evening communal supper.

The residency bursary is open to professional published writers of any genre such as literary fiction, poetry, playwrights, journalism or travel writing. There are three places available for newly published or experienced writers from across the 32 counties.

Application Requirements:
  1. A short outline of why you would like to (or need to) spend a relaxing and inspiring week of writing in Birr
  2. Full CV
  3. Sample copies of published work.
Applications are preferred in hard copy (so as to include samples of published work). Please send your applications to:

Rosalind Fanning 
Saint Brendan Street, 
County Offaly
Applications may also be accepted by email, with appropriate links to published work and enquires are welcome to info@tinjugstudio.com

Deadline for applications: Monday 30th June, 5.00pm
