Poetry of Loss: Brussels Literary Residency, May 2017

Literature Wales is looking for a writer from Wales to undertake a literary residency in Brussels in May 2017. The residency forms part of Poetry of Loss, a wider project commemorating the First World War. Poetry of Loss will have a specific focus on Hedd Wyn, who was killed on the battlefields of Flanders, near Ypres, on 31 July 1917. The project is delivered by Literature Wales, in partnership with the Welsh Government’s Cymru’n Cofio Wales Remembers 1914-1918 First World War Centenary Programme and the Government of Flanders.

Residency Dates: Monday 8 – Sunday 28 May 2017 Where: Passa Porta (www.passaporta.be), the International House of Literature in Brussels, will be the main base for the residency. Passa Porta is located in the heart of Brussels, and offers a unique working and meeting place for authors, readers, translators and literary mediators from across the world. The successful applicant will be housed in a Workspace located in the Passa Porta Salon, a shared apartment on the second floor in Rue Antoine Dansaert 46. The Workspace consists of a room with a writing desk, Wi-Fi, single bed, wardrobe and balcony, which looks out over the shared terrace and Passa Porta office. The communal spaces in the apartment (bathroom and kitchen) can be used freely. Conditions: This residency is open to writers born in or currently living in Wales, writing or working in Welsh or English, in the following genres: novels, short stories, poetry, spoken word, graphic novels, children’s literature, young adult fiction, and creative non-fiction.
