The Austrian Foreign Ministry BMEIA, as a part of the cultural exchange year between Austria and Bosnia and Herzegovina, offers a four week writing fellowship on the topic “Women’s Lives in Dialogue” to a writer/journalist/blogger from Bosnia and Herzegovina. The idea originates from the literary project Islam and the contemporary feminine literature taking place in Hittisau in August 2015. Deadline for applications is March 31, 2016.
