John Montague International Poetry Fellowship 2019 | Fully Funded.

John Montague International Poetry Fellowship 2019 – Munster Literature Centre is pleased to announce an initiative aimed at benefiting poets – The John Montague International Poetry Fellowship 2020. The fellowship is sponsorship by University College Cork. The deadline for submission of applications is 18th August, 2019. Hurry now to apply.

John Montague International Poetry Fellowship

The fellowship is made possible through the very generous sponsorship of University College Cork. The fellowship acknowledges the special place of poetry in the cultural history and contemporary practice of Cork City. The Munster Literature Centre hosts the largest annual poetry festival in Ireland.

The fellowship requires the poet to reside in Cork for twelve weeks and find time to work on their own writing. The poetry fellow would arrive in late January and depart late April. The fellow would contribute a public reading and a four-morning poetry masterclass to the Cork International Poetry Festival. During their twelve week stay they would provide a 5-credit workshop with the creative writing department of University College Cork.

Their mentoring duties would consist of devoting two hours each, per week, to two Cork poets over eight weeks (32 hours total). They will be welcomed into the literary and social life of the city where they will have the opportunity to network with resident established writers. They would present a farewell public reading at the Boole Library of University College Cork.

  • The successful candidate will have the opportunity to be inspired by living in one of Europe’s oldest cities, with a well-developed cultural infrastructure and a thriving literary community.
  • The successful fellow would receive a monthly stipend of €2000, totalling €6,000 and self-catering accommodation. The costs of economy air travel to and from Cork would also be covered.
