Ulysses’ Shelter is a cooperation project co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union aiming to build a network of exchange literary residencies across Europe designed for emerging writers and literary translators. Launched in 2016 with three partners, it now includes eight countries: Croatia, Czech Republic, Greece, Malta, Serbia, Slovenia, Spain (Mallorca) and Wales, UK.

Each of the following partners selects two applicants from each country for the programme:

The project provides an invaluable opportunity for emerging writers and translators to work, perform and present themselves in different social and cultural contexts in the partners’ countries. The residencies can bring new opportunities and possibilities to establish contact with other authors, translators, editors, publishers and/or representatives of various literary organisations. The residencies are accompanied by a supporting programme of activities and events aimed at specific local target groups.

The programme is now calling for applications for the following residencies:

  • Mljet, Croatia, January – March 2025 (up to 3 weeks)
  • Larissa, Greece, August – September 2024 (2–3 weeks)
  • Belgrade, Serbia, January – March 2025 (up to 4 weeks)
  • Valletta, Malta, the second half of August 2024 (2 weeks)
  • Prague, Czech Republic, November 2024 (2 weeks)
  • Caernarfon, Wales, UK, 1 April – 15 May 2025 (2 weeks)

Candidates will receive a financial award (700 EUR), travel and accommodation.
