The Irish Writers Centre and Dublin City Council are pleased to announce that Declan Burke and Elizabeth Reapy have been appointed as Dublin City Writers in Residence. The residency runs for the period October 2017 to September 2018 and will be managed by Dublin City Public Libraries through the Director of Dublin UNESCO City of Literature, and will be supported in kind by The Irish Writers Centre.

The writers will be based here in the Irish Writers Centre on Parnell Square for six months each until September 2018 and we look forward to welcoming Elizabeth to the building later this month. The residency will allow time for the writers’ own work, in addition to engagement with the general public, library groups and the IWC so keep an eye out for news of what they have planned in the coming months! 

For more information on the residencies see the Dublin City of Literature website.
