The Finnish young authors’ association Nuoren voiman liitto offers accommodation for young writers and literary translators from all over the world. Priority is given to guests aged under 40.
The residence, Villa Sarkia, is situated in Sysmä (http://en NULL.wikipedia NULL.org/wiki/Sysm%C3%A4), a small town about two hours from the capital of Finland, Helsinki. Accommodation in the house is free of charge, but the guests are responsible for their travel expenses, and personal costs such as food etc. are not covered by the organisation.
