One of our favourite Donegal poets is awarded a well-deserved bursary

Gaoth Dobhair short story writer and poet, Máire Dinny Wren, is among the selected writers to have been awarded the Anam Cara / IWC Irish Language Bursary 2019.

Máire is an exceptionally talented poet and short story writer from Gaoth Dobhair. 


Máire and the Derry-based author, Dave Duggan, will be going on a week-long residency to the Anam Cara Writer's and Artist's Retreat to give them time and space to write or develop their work in Irish.
Both writers have published a lot of work throughout the years and have won numerous awards.
Máire is working on her second book of poetry which is widely anticipated.
