"Writer of the City of Graz" Literature Scholarship: Registration Deadline 31 March 2017

3 February 2017

Each year the City of Graz awards a scholarship with the intention to promote writers who show innovative ability and examination of current subject matters, quality in aesthetic and linguistic terms, authenticity and artistic independence. The residence in Graz should contribute to cultural exchange and interaction with the local literature scene. The scholarship holders explicitly agree to stay in Graz for at least 8 months during this period.

The scholarship includes the provision of an apartment for free in the Cerrini-Schloessl on the Schlossberg, from September of the year of awarding until August 31stof the following year, and a monthly allowance of EUR 1,100,--. The Kulturvermittlung Steiermark will supervise the guest in consultation with the City of Graz-Department for Cultural Affairs.

Writers who have already been "Writers of the City of Graz" in the past cannot apply again for this scholarship. The submission deliberately does not provide any regional restrictions for the applicants, in order to make intercultural discourse between European and non-European writers possible.
