Cúirt and The Irish Writers Centre invited ambitious young writers aged 18-26 to apply to participate in the inaugural IWC / Cúirt Young Writers Delegates Programme.

The selected IWC/Cúirt Young Writer Delegates are Jack Sheenan, Gloria McNeely, Supriya Dhaliwal, and Rachel Sargent who will be attending the 2018 Cúirt International Festival of Literature.

The selected four young writers will be given festival passes and accommodation for four days of full literary immersion in its events and activities. During this period, they will be supported by an IWC facilitator and mentor Alan McMonagle to reflect on the festival and share their views on the experience.

Keep an eye on social media where they’ll be sharing their experiences using the hashtag #YoungWriterDelegates
