As an American living abroad, Thanksgiving is a tradition I really miss. But that Thanksgiving feeling came early this year. I am in awe of the generosity in the Irish writing community.
Author Rose Servitova, who has stayed with us for a day or two at a time over the last year, approached us about sponsoring a bursary to provide a mini-retreat to two writers who can’t get away for longer due to their duties as carers. And since she put that idea out into the universe, the support has been incredible. Author Kit de Waal is now on board as a co-sponsor, and the support keeps pouring in – namely editing & other author resources.
We’ll be announcing application details shortly, but meanwhile if you or anyone you know who might benefit from a fully-funded 3-day writing retreat, keep your eyes on the residencies tab on our website www.greywoodarts.org or on our twitter, Facebook and Instagram pages for the call for applications in the coming weeks.
