Open call for the next edition of the Visegrad Literary Residencies

The next edition of the scholarship programme for writers, poets, literary translators, critics, essayists, and journalists from Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary is open for applications from 15 September to 15 October 2022.

The scholarship includes a stay in the chosen city and a monthly stipend of 1,300 Euros gross (Compact Spring Edition) or 2,400 Euros gross (Regular Autumn Edition), as well as support from the Host Institution in preparing the stay, organising literary meetings, interviews, and workshops, as well as establishing contacts with publishers and literary critics.

This year’s edition of the Programme will enable 32 Literary Residents to pursue their own projects on one of two possible dates: 1st May – 12th June (Compact Spring Edition) or 1st September – 30th November (Regular Autumn Edition).

Each host institution will organise two stays for two groups of four residents from each country, who will work on their individual projects and participate in literary events organised by the host institutions.

The programme is implemented by four host institutions from V4 countries: the Institut umeni (Arts Institute) in Prague, the Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeum (Petőfi Literary Museum) in Budapest, Stowarzyszenie Willa Decjusza (the Villa Decius Association) in Krakow, and the Literárne informačné centrum (Centre for Information on Literature) in Bratislava. The Villa Decius Association is the coordinator of the programme.
