RESIDENCE PROGRAM IN SOFIA
Deadline for submission of requests: March 31, 2021
The House of Literature and Translation is reopening the program for international writers ‘and translators’ residencies for 2021 in the hope that the year will be calmer and allow for international mobility.
The residences provide an opportunity for calm and motivating work on creative projects, for establishing new professional contacts and communicating with the Bulgarian audience. The program provides foreign translators from Bulgarian with a great opportunity to refresh their language skills, to work directly with the author they are translating, to receive support from other translators, researchers and specialists, to meet colleagues from other countries working with Bulgarian. Resident writers, in turn, will be able to immerse themselves in the Bulgarian context and get acquainted with the topics that interest them.
The program offers residents free accommodation in Sofia and a workspace with a library in the House of Literature Translation.
For 2021, the House of Literature and Translation also offers residency scholarships under various affiliate programs.
