Throughout the month of June, we are inviting individuals and organisations to submit proposals for projects involving Laureate na nÓg Eoin Colfer. As Laureate, Eoin will be focussing on a small number of themes and projects, initiated by himself and/or in collaboration with others.

The Laureate na nÓg project has five key aims:

2. To raise the profile of children’s literature in Ireland.
3. To increase media attention for children’s literature in Ireland and internationally.
