Fellowships at the Seamus Heaney Centre
The Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s invites Expressions of Interest from recent graduates of their PhD programme.
The Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen’s hosts three annual Fellowships designed to support writers at a crucial stage of their career, and to maintain relationships between the writers, their research and the University.
One Publishing Fellowship - established in recognition of the changing landscape of the publishing industry and the role emerging writers can play in shaping it.
Two Ciaran Carson Writing and the City Fellowships - established in memory of its first director Ciaran Carson, and inspired by his writing about the city of Belfast in poetry and prose.
They each carry a stipend of £10,000, to be awarded to recently completed PhD students at the Seamus Heaney Centre. Each Fellowship term will begin in January 2022 and run for the calendar year.
Fellows will be encouraged to carry on with their own creative work, to contribute to or develop projects relevant to the Fellowship’s themes, and to provide occasional teaching support to taught programmes within the Seamus Heaney Centre.
We invite anyone who has completed a PhD at the Seamus Heaney Centre at Queen's in the past two years to submit an up-to-date CV, with a record of publications and other relevant activities. As the Fellowships are awarded annually, eligible CVs will automatically be carried over into the following year.

Deadline: Fri 10 December 2021
