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.
