Ljubljana: Novo Mesto Writer-in-Residence Programme

Who: Writers from Germany

Section: Literature

Duration: 4 weeks

Since 2015 the Goethe-Institut Ljubljana and the publishing house Goga offer a month-long literary residency in Novo Mesto in Slovenia for a German writer once per year in September.

During hectic and turbulent times the picturesque, historic town of Novo mesto, 70 kilometres from the capital Ljubljana, with its about 25.000 inhabitants provides a safe and quiet haven to calm down and focus exclusively on literary work.

In addition, the residency facilitates contact with the Slovenian literary scene in particular and the culture of Slovenia as a whole. By offering two readings in Novo mesto and Ljubljana and with a translation of excerpts of the authors work, ties with the inhabitants of Slovenia and persons engaged in the cultural sector will be established.
