The Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary 2021

Monday, 29 March 2021, 10.00pm

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

MoLI is offering a five-day, immersive, blended learning programme to 15 lucky students around Ireland. The Edna O’Brien Young Writers Bursary will take place both online and onsite in MoLI from 19 to 23 July 2021 (subject to public health guidelines).

You will be mentored through a creative writing project by one of Ireland’s leading writers, and you’ll meet with publishers, authors, literature academics and fellow writing enthusiasts.

We are not looking for polished, finished pieces of writing, or writers with large amounts of experience. We are simply interested in hearing about you, your passion and your creativity.

Travel costs and meals will be provided for all week-long bursary attendees. Entry is easy and doesn’t cost anything. The closing date for applications is 10pm on 29 March 2021.

You will be notified of the outcome on Friday, 21 May 2021. Please note that you will be contacted via the email used when submitting your application.

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