Poetry Ireland Access CĂșirt bursary

Poetry Ireland Logo

‌Poetry Ireland are offering a bursary for poets to attend the Cúirt International Literature Festival in Galway. In particular they are specifically encouraging applications from poets from diverse backgrounds. 

The intention of this bursary is to provide a poet from a background or group currently underrepresented in Irish poetry with the opportunity to attend the Cúirt Festival in Galway. The bursary will include a daily stipend, accommodation and travel, and tickets to Cúirt events and poetry workshops.

Interested poets should submit a one-page cover letter about why their poetry would benefit from the opportunity. The deadline to apply is 15 March. With this bursary, Poetry Ireland hope to amplify the voice and work of a poet writing from a perspective that is often underrepresented in contemporary Irish poetry. More details here:
