The Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary

The Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary

Are you between 15 and 17 years old and would you love to be a writer some day? Or are you already one?

The Museum of Literature Ireland is offering a 5-day immersive programme for 15 lucky students from around Ireland. You will be mentored through a creative writing project by one of Ireland’s most exciting writers, Alan McMonagle, as well as meeting with publishers, authors, literature academics and fellow writing enthusiasts. Accommodation, travel costs and meals will be provided for all bursary attendees.

Entry is easy and doesn’t cost anything. The closing date for applications is 28 February 2020, 5pm.

We are hosting an information session about the Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary on Saturday, 1 February 2020, at 11am in MoLI’s Learning Room. This is an informal session, and you do not need to attend to apply for the bursary.

The Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary is governed by MoLI’s Child Protection Policy.
