PLU Mini Writing Residency
Beginning in January 2016, Paris Lit Up is proud to offer a new 3-day mini writing residency to creators of prose or poetry. Our aim is to give the opportunity to writers – emerging or confirmed – to share their work and perform in Paris in direct collaboration with artists and musicians in the City of Light. Whether you are planning a book tour or simply passing through, this residency is open to writers of any style or genre.
What we offer:
- 3 days / 2 nights in a humble Paris studio (for up to 2 people) complete with kitchen, independent bathroom, linens, books and vinyl records (extra days are available for a small fee)
- A featured performance (25 min to 30 min) at Paris Lit Up Open Mic on Thursday evening, including drinks
- The possibility to host a paid writing workshop at Berkeley Books of Paris on Saturday afternoon (15h-17h)
- A unique chance to meet and network with local writers, artists and musicians residing in Paris
Writers interested in obtaining a residency should email us (info [at] parislitup [dot] com) with a short presentation of themselves, a small sample (5 pages of prose / 5 poems) of their recent work and any mention of publications or other residencies (if applicable). Please note: space is extremely limited so please send your application at least 3 months in advance.
