Bucheon City of Literature Open Call for Writer or Artist Residency

6 April 2022 - News

The Bucheon City of Literature writers in residence program promotes writing and literature, whilst giving an opportunity to enjoy the dynamic and unique environment of Bucheon.

During the seven-weeks of the residency, the writer will spend 80% of their time working on their own project and 20% of their time participating in programs that are designed and personalised with input from the residential officer in Bucheon City of Literature. There is a generous budget for airfare, food and accommodation.

An interest in Korean culture and literature is important, you must have at least one published work and live in a UNESCO City of Literature (like Manchester!).

Bucheon are currently seeking a Writer in Residence who better understands the intrinsic value of cultural exchange, which makes the world a more beautiful, connected place for everyone. Better understanding of others, our cultures, and acknowledging our differences is especially important considering the current situations around the world such as the war between Ukraine and Russia.
