The Museum of Irish Literature (MOLI) has just announced an exciting new venture for young writers across the country. The Edna O’Brien Young Writers Fellowship will be an immersive five-day program for fifteen students from across Ireland.
The scholarship is open to teenagers between the ages of 15 and 17 and welcomes applications from people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, people with disabilities, working class or from the LGBTQI+ community.
The lucky students who are chosen will be mentored at MOLI, by Colm Keegan, an award-winning author and poet from Dublin, through a creative writing project. Students will also have the chance to meet other authors, publishers, literary scholars and other lovers of writing during their stay.
As mentioned on the MOLI website:
“We’re not looking for polished, finished writing, or writers with a lot of experience. We are interested in hearing about you, your passion and your creativity. »
Accommodation, travel expenses and meals will all be covered by the scholarship and the application deadline is March 14 at 10 p.m.
The program for successful applicants will run this summer, July 18-July 22, and will be a blended learning experience with on-site and online workshops.
