The Annie Deeny Memorial Prize was launched by distinguished poet Fleur Adcock in May 2004. Mrs Annie Deeny was a teacher and mother of six children who, although she wrote, never sought to have her work published. This perpetual prize is in her memory to encourage someone in a similar situation to write and to publish. It provides a two-week residency at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre at Annaghmakerrig plus €250 to cover extra costs. It will be awarded each year to a woman or man, preferably a parent, who is developing her/his career as a writer and whose promise will be nurtured by a period of residency at Annaghmakerrig. Applications are now invited for 2007.You may apply for the prize by completing the standard application form available on the website http://www.tyroneguthrie.ie/ You should attach a short statement about yourself and your work, indicating why you believe you should be awarded the prize. You should also enclose some samples of your writing.Applications by 31 July 2007 to:Dr. Pat DonlonDirectorTyrone Guthrie CentreAnnaghmakerrigNewblissCo. MonaghanRepublic of Ireland
