Children’s Books Ireland and the Tyrone Guthrie Centre have announced an opportunity for three artists to avail of a week-long residency each, to take place in late 2019. These bursaries are designed specifically for mid-career children’s books authors or illustrators. While several schemes exist to support emerging and debut artists, these bursaries exist to support more experienced, published authors and illustrators who require time and space to focus on their craft to the benefit of their continuing careers.
Applicants must have at least two books for children published by a recognised publisher. Applications will be accepted by email only to firstname.lastname@example.org and the deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 12th July.
