LITERARY RESIDENCIES IN WARSAW FOR WRITERS, PLAYWRITERS AND TRANSLATORS FROM BELARUS AND UKRAINE
We are launching another round of residencies to select at least five residents for stays of 2 to 6 weeks.
We invite guests from Belarus and Ukraine to spend several creative weeks in the centre of Warsaw with the support of Staromiejski Dom Kultury (SDK). We encourage people to choose to stay several weeks in Warsaw to immerse in the artistic life, history and cultural attractions of the capital city. Our residents will be provided with comfortable workspace and accommodation in the city centre, a scholarship of PLN 120 per day including taxes, technical and logistic support, and an active involvement in our existing projects.
We are recruiting writers, playwriters and translators from Belarus and Ukraine who meet the following criteria:
- At least one book, collection of poems or translation published in print or at least one play staged in the theater;
- Communication skills in English or Polish;
- Currently working on a literary project.
Details of the timing and duration of residencies will be agreed separately with each resident.
Start of recruitment: 13th November 2023
Application deadline: 26th November 2023
Residency date: January-June 2024
Results announcement: 8th December 2023

The project is implemented in the framework of a partnership between three Polish host cities: Cracow, Gdańsk and Warsaw and two literary associations: Literary Union Association and Literary Translators Association. The partnership offers residencies in the three host cities and a joint website that promotes the literary residency concept and includes a database of scholarships available in Poland and abroad.
