This new residency, a collaboration between Cove Park and Comhairle nan Leabhraichean / The Gaelic Books Council, will take place from 29 August – September 2022. It is aimed at Gaelic writers based in Scotland, aged between 18 and 25, and provides the time and funding required to develop current projects and focus upon new work. To support this, the resident will also receive one-to-one mentoring from an established Gaelic writer. Further information on the residency and details of how to apply are available here (click here for English version).

We are delighted poet and former Cove Park resident Rody Gorman is an advisor to this programme and we look forward to working with Rody and all at Comhairle nan Leabhraichean / The Gaelic Books Council this year.
