The National Library of Ireland is looking for a Poet in Residence!
Information about the Poet in Residence Scheme:
In partnership with the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media and the Decade of Centenaries Programme, the National Library of Ireland is looking to appoint a Poet in Residence to creatively engage with, and produce original work inspired by, two of their Commemorations-themed projects: recent exhibition From Turmoil to Truce that explores key aspects of the War of Independence and the cataloguing and digitisation project, and Towards a Republic that reveals personal papers of key figures of the War of Independence.
This is a unique residency and an opportunity for emerging or indeed, more established poets to engage with the Library and showcase their portfolio of work. It offers a fee of €20,000 along with up to €5,000 for expenses and runs for a year (May 2021 – May 2022). The closing date for applications is the 19 March at 5pm, and further information on the residency and how to apply is available on their website: https://www.nli.ie/en/2021-poet-in-residence.aspx
