The Villa Decius Association invites writers, poets, essayists, critics, literature translators and journalists from the Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to submit applications for residency scholarships under the third edition of the Visegrad Literary Residency programme.
Under this year’s edition of the programme, 32 residents will have the opportunity to pursue their literary projects at four Host Institutions (in Bratislava, Budapest, Krakow or Prague) in the period of their choice: 1 May – 12 June 2014 or 1 September – 30 November 2014.
32 grantees under the programme will be selected on the basis of their individual applications sent via an online application form, available on the Villa Decius Association’s website.
The Visegrad Literary Residency programme has been launched by the International Visegrad Fund as a series of residencies and literary events. It is addressed to writers, poets, essayists, critics, literature translators and journalists from the Visegrad Group countries (Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary).
The programme is based on the partnership of four Host Institutions, from each of the V4 countries: Institut umeni in Prague, Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeum in Budapest, Villa Decius Association in Krakow and Literarné informačné centrum in Bratislava.
The aim of the programme is to host selected Literary Residents from all four countries in each V4 country, supporting their work and mobility and creating a platform for information exchange. On top of this, the programme fosters the development and promotion of literature created in Visegrad Group countries in Central Europe. The Villa Decius Association acts as the Programme Coordinator.
