Literature Scholarship: Writer of the City of Graz 2022

Entry deadline: 31 March 2022

The Austrian city of Graz is seeking applications for its Writer in Residence programme for the period of September 2022 to August 2023!

Graz awards the "Writer of the City of Graz" scholarship each year. The residency in Graz should contribute to cultural exchange and interaction with the local literature scene.

It includes the provision of an apartment for free in the Cerrini-Schlössl on the Schlossberg, from September 1st of the year of awarding until August 31st of the following year, and a monthly allowance of EURO 1.300.

The Kulturvermittlung Steiermark will supervise the guest in consultation with the City of Graz-Department for Cultural Affairs. The intention is to promote writers who show innovative ability and examination of current subject matters, quality in aesthetic and linguistic terms, authenticity and artistic independence.

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. However, intercultural exchange is an indispensable approach for awarding the scholarship.
