Offaly County Council would like to commission a professional writer to deliver a literature project with the potential to have a lasting impact for the community of Banagher, County Offaly, during 2019/2020. They encourage a proposal that has a community participatory approach to literature.
They are open to accepting a proposal from professional writers of genres including: poetry, fiction, short fiction, and playwriting. Engagement with the community is a prerequisite and every effort should be made to involve the community as a whole in some aspect of the proposal. They urge you to keep in mind that not every participant may have a knowledge of a particular literary genre, but this should not preclude them from participating.
The preferred commission will have the potential to have lasting significance and meaning to the community, while also ensuring a strong artistic priority in relation to the writers own developmental practice.
