The Walls of Limerick Programme


The Walls of Limerick Programme
Writepace is delighted to announce the launch of its “Walls of Limerick” Mentoring Project, funded by the Arts Council. Following a rigorous application process, our ten mentees have been selected.

The project sought writers who have demonstrated a commitment to their craft but who, for whatever reasons, felt they were facing barriers to progressing. Now that we have selected our applicants, they will be offered:

* Free individualised mentoring from experienced writers.

* Free, fully funded participation in a bespoke weekend residency for writers, (or online equivalent) which will provide an intensive, highly supportive environment in which to develop and accelerate creative work on a specific writing goal.

* The opportunity to have their work edited, proofread and published in a special edition of Limerick literary journal, Silver Apples Magazine.

* Support from the Writepace member network – a Limerick-based co-operative for creative writers.

* Practical support for writing equipment and resources including laptop loan scheme.
