The young writer Ilija Đurović from Montenegro was the writer in residence in Tirana in August. He used his stay in the quiet summer time above all for writing and working with the translator Ben Andoni. They prepared the Albanian translation of his short stories for publication in the literary supplement Milosao. Đurović' first book of short stories was published in 2014 and was very well received by the readers and critics alike.
Established in 2013, the writers in residence program Tirana in Between offers writers and translators the possibility to get to know the cultural life of Tirana and to present their works to the Albanian audience. The program is organized by Poeteka with the support of TRADUKI and the Albanian Ministry of Culture.
