Applicants eligible for this fellowship are fiction writers, poets, essayists, columnists, translators and playwrights. We are interested in writers who are innovative, experimental, who cope with contemporary thematics in their works, or translators working on such translations.

The overall aim of the residency is to enable the contemporary Southeast European authors and translators to get more acquainted with literary, cultural, and social life in Macedonia, and particularly in Skopje, while at the same time the local audience gets to know the prominent regional literary scene. While in Skopje, the visiting writer/translator uses the time of scholarship to work on their current project.
