Writer Residency Opportunity in Berlin

Literature Ireland invites Irish fiction writers to apply for a one-month residency at Literarisches Colloquium Berlin. The Colloquium has been at the heart of the German literary scene for over fifty years, and now serves as an event forum, a workshop and an artist retreat for authors and translators.

Applicants must be of established reputation, have a minimum of two books published in translation (novels and/or short stories) and be available to take up residency at the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin for the month of October 2015.

Entries should include details of published works (in English/Irish and in translation) and a sample of a work in progress. Applications must be submitted by Monday 3 August 2015 to info@literatureireland.com with 'Residency in Berlin 2015' in the subject line.

Literature Ireland is the national organisation for the promotion of Irish literature abroad. It awards literary translation grants to international publishers, hosts literary translators in Ireland, co-ordinates the participation of Irish authors at international event & festivals, and represents Ireland at the major world book fairs.
