The Aodh Ruadh Ó Domhnaill Poetry Bursary encourages and promotes the creation of new poetic work in a dynamic international setting. The Bursary provides the poets of Ireland and Galicia with space, time, context and optimal conditions to dedicate to their creative writing project. The Bursary includes flights to the residency, accommodation and a stipend.
The bursary will be accompanied by at least two public readings by the beneficiary, in Galicia and Ireland respectively, during the period of residence, as well as the publication of a chapbook of their poems translated into the language of the destination country.
While the bursary holder in Ireland enjoys contact with other international artists in the Tyrone Guthrie Centre, those residing in A Coruña will have priority access to museums, galleries, libraries, concerts, guided tours, literary meetings, plays and other events in a city with a rich and diverse cultural life.
The opportunity is open to any poet over the age of eighteen born/ resident in Ireland with at least one published collection of poetry may apply.
The Aodh Ruadh Ó Domhnaill Poetry Bursary gratefully acknowledges the financial and collaborative support of The Tyrone Guthrie Centre, Annaghmakerrig, Residencia Literaria 1863, Literature Ireland, Poetry Ireland, the Embassy of Ireland Madrid, Bray Literary Festival, Aspects Literary Festival, Poemaria International Poetry Festival and the Departmento de Filoloxía Inglesa e Alemá, University of Santiago Compostela.
