Residents of the Visegrad Literary Residency Programme Arrive in Bratislava

The Slovak Literary Center (Literárne informačné centrum) in Bratislava, in cooperation with the International Visegrad Fund, hosts writers from the Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland and Slovakia twice a year.

The Visegrad Literary Residency Programme is addressed to writers of fiction and non-fiction, poets, essayists, critics as well as literary translators, publicists and journalists from the Visegrad countries. The programme, financed by the International Visegrad Fund, is based on the cooperation of four institutes in the respective V4 countries: Institut umění (Arts Institute) in Prague, Petőfi Irodalmi Múzeum (Petőfi Literary Museum) in Budapest, Stowarzyszenie Willa Decjusza (Villa Decius Association) in Krakow and Literárne informačné centrum (Slovak Literary Center) in Bratislava.

There are two kinds of residencies that artists can apply for: the 6-weeks spring edition and the 3-months autumn edition.

The autumn edition has just started in September by welcoming Hungarian poet Ferenc André from Romania, Polish poet Łukasz Kaźmierczak/ Łucja Kuttig, Czech poet and publicist Michal Doležal, and Slovak translator and linguist Michal Harpáň in Bratislava

We will introduce our residents and their work in the upcoming weeks.
