Writer’s from German-speaking countries and Africa are invited to apply for a month's fully-funded residency that will take place in Rwanda.
As a collaboration between Huza Press and the Goethe Institut Kigali, the organisers are announcing a four-week writers’ residency in September 2021.
The purpose of this residency is to support writers as they complete or make significant advances with a work-in-progress novel manuscript about gender.
This writers’ residency will be awarded jointly to two writers: one writer based in Africa and one German-speaking writer. Both writers will stay in Kigali for four weeks.
Transportation costs, accommodation, and visa fees will be covered. Each writer will receive a grant of €2,000 and more. Working languages are English and German.
The residency is open to legal-age writers from German-speaking countries and African countries (except Rwanda).
Writers should have at least one published text, either with a publisher, in a literary magazine or in a newspaper.
The deadline is on Monday 16th May 2021.
- Letter of motivation documenting your writing career, a proposed writing plan for the residency and the reasons for your application (max. 2 pages, in English).
- Description of the novel to be developed during your residency and its connection to ideas of writing gender.
- Work sample and a CV.
