We are now accepting applications for our week-long summer fiction workshops. 

Led by Sean O’Reilly, the workshops will take place in Dublin and Galway. These are intensive daytime workshops during which each writer’s work comes up for in-depth discussion twice. Also included are three sessions on aspects of narrative prose by guest speakers, including the editors of The Stinging Fly

No more than ten places will be offered on each course. Places are offered based on work submitted.

Applications should be made to our Submittable page by the relevant closing date. If you can attend the workshop at either location please apply to the Galway workshop only. 

June 26-30, Galway Arts Centre
Applications close May 3rd

July 10-14, Irish Writers Centre, Dublin
Applications close May 10th

Successful applicants for each workshop will be notified within ten days of the respective closing date.

To secure their place, writers will then be asked to:
– Confirm that they wish to attend the workshop and that they are available to attend for the full week, Monday to Friday.
– Pay the workshop fee of €325 (€300 for IWC members) no later than May 31st (Payment options are: cheque, paypal, bank transfer. Details will be provided as required).

Please note:
Prior to the workshop, participating writers will be asked to submit two pieces of work for circulation among the group. We will expect all participants to have closely read all the work circulated before each workshop begins.
