Schloss Leuk

Schloss Leuk

Spycher: Literaturpreis Leuk

Description 

The Schloss Leuk Foundation, which has expedited the reconstruction of the medieval castle at the same-named community of Oberwallis, has initiated a number of socio-cultural projects during the past years. The most sophisticated one of these is certainly the Spycher: Literaturpreis Leuk (Spycher: Literary Prize Leuk). The prize consists of a five-year right of residence for writers and primarily distinguishes authors whose works show a certain nearness to the special, border-crossing situation of the Wallis.
