The Ladder Project is funded by Derry City and Strabane District Council’s Artist and Cultural Practitioner Award and is a collaboration between Derry based writer, Sue Divin and the Irish Writers Centre. The Ladder Project aims to offer free places to 12 writers/emerging from the Derry City and Strabane District Council area to train/mentor them in facilitation skills for writing workshops. They will then use these skills to deliver writing workshops to a minimum of 30 participants from the Derry City and Strabane District Council area. Afterwards they will meet again to share their experiences and learning and to evaluate the project.
Participants will be chosen using a number of criteria.
The closing date is 3 pm Friday 19 June 2020.
