The Announcement of the 2019 Residency Programme Results

Dear applicants,

first of all, thank you for all your applications. It's been very difficult to choose only six names out of 428 applications from 81 countries we received this year. We are glad that so many interesting projects are in your plans. Very inspiring and worth realizing. This time we could support only six of you, but we encourage you to work on your ideas and wish you luck in all your projects.

The committee agreed finally upon these six names: Richard Fidler, Joanna Lech, Justin MacGregor, Fiona Sampson, Caya Makhele, and Sabine Scholl.

The people in the committee were: Dana Kalinová – former director of the Book World Fair Prague, Alena Lhotová – vice-president of the Czech Literary Translators´ Guild, Viktor Debnár – Arts and Theater Institute, and Kateřina Bajo – Prague City of Literature. The schedule for 2019 will be:

  • January – February – Richard Fidler
  • March – April – Caya Makhele
  • May – June – Joanna Lech
  • July – August – Sabine Scholl
  • September – October – Fiona Sampson
  • November – 15th December – Justin MacGregor

We'll inform all the residents about the residency details well ahead of time.
