Granada UNESCO City of Literature and the University of Granada are setting up this programme to foster contacts and forge bonds between writers from Granada and those from other cities and countries all over the world, to extend the international reach of Granada-based writers, to build international awareness of the cultural fabric of the city of Granada, and to promote Granada as a city of the arts that welcomes talent from abroad with open arms.
The Granada Writers in Residence Programme is targeted at emerging writers, residing in any country in whichever language they write. As part of the residency writers will receive a month’s stay (30 nights) in Granada (for two writers), between 2 November and 1 December 2021. Granada UNESCO City of Literature will cover the travelling expenses of each of the writers selected.
