The Visegrad Literary Residency Programme, established 2012 by the International Visegrad Fund, provides for a series of residency stays and literary events open to writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, essayists, and critics, as well as to literary translators, publicists and journalists from the Visegrad Countries (Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia). The programme provides support for the work and mobility of talented literary residents, and aims to create a platform for information exchange and to assist the development and promotion of V4 literature in Central Europe.
Visegrad Literary Residency Programme is run by a partnership of Villa Decius (Krakow) with Institut umění (http://www NULL.culturenet NULL.cz/) (The Arts Institute) in Prague, Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeum (http://www NULL.pim NULL.hu/) (Petőfi Literary Museum) in Budapest and Literárne informačné centrum (http://www NULL.litcentrum NULL.sk/) (Centre for Information on Literature) in Bratislava.
The Autumn 2014 programme will enable a total of 16 literary residents to carry out 6-week/3-month literary projects in one of the four host institutions in the period 1 September – 30 November 2014. Selected residents will receive a stipend of €2,250.
The deadline for application is 28 February 2014 at 11.59 p.m. CET.
