The last two weeks of August will be marked by a creative residency of Claire Prentice – Edinburgh-based writer and journalist – at Villa Decius.
Prentice has been working as a journalist for two decades, collaborating with various media, including the BBC, NPR, The Times of London, The Guardian and The Washington Post. She wrote two reportage books, and she is currently working on her third book about a family who made a fortune on real estate in New York City and then disappeared into oblivion in a strange and mysterious way.
The residency is carried out within the framework of cooperation between two UNESCO Cities of Literature: Krakow and Edinburgh. Last year, Krakow-based writer Ahsan Ridha Hassan was granted a one-month residency in Edinburgh.
