Resources

At Words Ireland we aim to provide an information resource to writers at all stages of their careers. These resources include:

 

Guidance Sheets
Guidance sheets have been prepared by Words Ireland with the help of industry professionals. We started with areas that we felt were significant for writers and those involved in the literary industry. These include guidance sheets on Artists’ Exemption, Authors’ Contracts, Treatment of Writers at Festivals.

Pay Scale Information for Writers
Words Ireland organisations’ own policies or views in regard to the payment of writers at events.

Professional Development
Words Ireland supports professional development workshops, masterclasses, seminars and mentorships.

Events
Over the last two years Words Ireland has both organised and supported a number of events across Ireland.

Research
Our research so far has resulted in pay scale information and guidance sheets for writers.  We are currently gathering information from our Writers Series series of nationwide meetings that will be released during April–May 2017.
