After having had Pippa Goldschmid (UNESCO City of Literature Edinburgh) as our guest in 2018 and Judith Rossel (UNESCO City of Literature Melbourne) in 2020/2022, we are looking forward to welcoming the third writer next year.
About the program
The program is thanks to a grant awarded by the “Kulturstiftung Rhein-Neckar-Kreis e.V.” in cooperation with the UNESCO City of Literature Heidelberg for authors from UNESCO Cities of Literature. It will take place in the “Commandant’s House Dilsberg”, at Dilsberg Fortress, in Neckargemünd (approximately 14 km from Heidelberg).
The building served as the Commandant’s quarters of the Dilsberg garrison in the 17th century. The former Commandant’s House was acquired 1996 and renovated by the Rhein-Neckar-District. Since then the “Commandant’s House Dilsberg” has been a center for the promotion of art and culture: exhibitions, chamber music concerts, open-air concerts, readings, symposia and discussion rounds enrich the cultural life of the region. Here, art, music, and literature grant holders find a creative work sphere.
The duration is 3 months.
Total value max. € 3,750 per person:
