Blurry image of raindrops.

The Cultural Administration in the Västra Götaland Region is calling for applications from individuals involved in literature for their one-month residency programme. There are a total of 15 residency grants for 2024 available, in 11 locations throughout the Region Västra Götaland. All scholarship stays will take place in November 2024.

Applications are accepted from individuals involved in literature, such as writers and literary translators, from all over the world. In 2024, applications are especially welcomed from authors and translators active in the UNESCO network for creative cities in the field of literature, as well as authors and translators active in Sweden’s national minorities and minority languages.

When the residency is concluded, the grantee and the host shall each submit a brief report on the residency in which they describe their work, the type of public event that was arranged, the number of people who attended, and so on.

The residency grant includes one month of free accommodation and access to a workplace. The grant is worth 20,000 SEK. For residency grants where the host is a library or an independent actor within the cultural field, a writer’s fee of 8,500 SEK is also included for a public appearance which will be organised during the residency, in consultation with the host.
