Residency in the City of Literature!

Residency in the City of Literature!

Krakow has just opened a call for a residency program addressed to young writers from UNESCO Cities of Literature from around the world! Artists from 28 cities, including Edinburgh, Melbourne, Prague and Seattle, can apply for a stay in our city!

The two-month stays in May-June or September-October are especially dedicated to emerging and young talents. The most important criterion is having at least one publication. Additionally, candidates should know English on an upper intermediate level, be willing and ready to actively participate in the literary life of Krakow and work on their own literary project during the stay.

Residents will stay in the guest rooms of the Villa Decius Culture Institute, which is the co-organizer of the project. Moreover, they will receive a creative scholarship, as well as reimbursement of travel costs to and from Krakow.

Detailed information can be found here.

The Program was created with the belief that the UNESCO Creative Cities Network provides an excellent opportunity to develop interconnections, boost mobility, and offer professionalization services for writers.
