A POETS’ AGORA APPLICATION
FOR A 2 WEEKS’ POETRY RESIDENCY
In ATHENS, from May 10th to May 24th, 2019
Deadline January 31st, 2019
A Poets’ Agora’s residency program is designed as an experience to pursue personal creative growth in the vibrant capital city of Athens, during two fulfilling weeks, allowing you to attend multiple contemporary art and cultural events, as well as to be inspired by the ancient architecture and marvels scattered around the city.
Living arrangements offer a room in a beautiful neoclassical apartment, with frescoes on the ceilings, in the center of Athens, in the old quarter of Plaka. You will be free to draw your own schedule and you will be given a small stipend to cover the costs of the cultural events, local transportation, etc. International and national travel expenses are the responsibility of the applicant.
The preferred applicants should be interested in Hellenic literature and a degree of knowledge of modern Greek is welcome, but not required, as their poems will be written in either modern Greek or English and translated into the other language.
A Poets’ Agora wishes you will use this time in the best way possible to enhance your poetry writing, in Greek and/or English. A selection of your work will then be published in accompaniment with our yearly edition, in late autumn of 2019.
