The Mini-Writer’s Retreat for Carers (Ireland)

The Mini-Writer’s Retreat for Carers Bursary aims to support writers who, due to their role as carer, find it difficult to find time for writing. You may be a son caring for an elderly parent, a working mother with school-going kids, a spouse caring for a long-term ill partner or a person supporting a sibling with a disability. If you feel you would benefit from a three-night writer’s retreat at Greywood Arts, please consider applying for this opportunity. We have two up for grabs.
