The TRADUKI-supported Writers-in-Residence Programs in Belgrade, Novo Mesto, Prishtina, Sarajevo, Skopje, Split, and Tirana have developed a joint program called “Reading Balkans”, for which they received the support of the Creative Europe Program of the European Union. They invite interested writers (prose, poetry, drama, and essays) from Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Kosovo, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia to apply for four-week stays in one of the seven cities. Available are 21 fellowships in the period from March 1 and July 31, 2018. Deadline for applications is October 25, 2017.
Candidates are to apply via this application form. They should attach a short biography, list of published work, a recommendation letter, and a synopsis of the project.
