UpLift: Young Leaders of Colour in Literature Initiative

Deadline: 10 Dec 2021

Are you a young writer or arts professional of colour aged 18-30 looking to take your place as a leader in literature? Would you like to advance your own creative work with the help of experienced writers and arts professionals, while learning the skills you need to inspire and motivate others to get involved in the arts?

The Irish Writers Centre, in partnership with Words of Colour Productions, are delighted to announce UpLift, a new pilot international workshop and mentoring initiative for young people of colour with ambitions of leadership in the literature sector across Ireland and the UK.

The UpLift Initiative is open to people of colour aged 18-30, who are living in Ireland or the UK, and who aim to become leaders in the field of literature, whether as writers, publishers or arts professionals. Applications are welcome from individuals from all arts backgrounds, and whatever your involvement in the literature sector to date we encourage you to see this programme as a springboard that can help you reach the next stage in your development.
