Now in its second year, the Young Gaelic Writer Residency is a fully funded residency for Gaelic writers aged between 18 and 30.

This two-week residency will take place from Monday 4 September to Sunday 17 September 2023, and the resident will receive a fee, a travel and research allowance, and one-to-one bespoke mentoring with an established Gaelic writer. The deadline for applications is Monday 26 June 2023 (by noon). More information and how to apply is available here.

The Young Gaelic Writer Residency is the result of a partnership between Cove Park and Comhairle nan Leabhraichean / The Gaelic Books Council.
