The Kosovar writer and actor Shpëtim Selmani spent the whole month of August in the Albanian capital thanks to a residency fellowship within the TRADUKI funded Tirana in Between programme. There he jotted down his impressions of his stay in several new texts.
In August, the P.E.N. Centre of Bosnia and Herzegovina welcomed the author Maja Gal Štromar from Slovenia to the TRADUKI funded Writers in Residence programme. During her stay she did research in city's archives to find information on the death of her grandfather, who in 1941 was shot by the Gestapo in Sarajevo – an event that will serve as the foundation of her forthcoming novel.
On 29th August Vasile Ernu presented himself to literature enthusiasts as part of the event series Disku(r)sija in Split.

This August he was a participant of the TRADUKI funded Writer in Residence programme Marko Marulić, organised by the association KURS. During his stay in the Dalmatian coastal town, Vasile Ernu worked on the third part of his trilogy Mică trilogie a marginalilor [Little Trilogy of Marginal People].
