Paris Writer’s Residency 2024 (France)

View of courtyard of classic, 3-story building in the French style.

English-language practitioners in poetry, prose or other genres of writing are invited to apply for the fourth edition of the Paris Writer’s Residency, an initiative jointly sponsored by The American University of Paris (AUP), the Centre Culturel Irlandais (CCI), and the University of Kent Paris School of Arts and Culture (PSAC). The residency will take place at the CCI in October 2024.

There are three main obligations:

  • A day of interaction with undergraduate Creative Writing students at AUP;
  • A workshop with Masters students at PSAC;
  • A reading/public event at Reid Hall hosted jointly by AUP, PSAC, and CCI.

The writer appointed to this position may be a practitioner in poetry, prose, or another genre, including literary translation. The residency is interested in someone who offers interdisciplinary possibilities and who would relish the opportunity to engage with students.

The appointment is non-stipendiary but accommodation is provided at the Centre Culturel Irlandais in the heart of the Latin Quarter (5è arrondissement). In addition, there is an expenses allowance of 1,500 EUR to cover travel and living costs.
