Writers in residence
For its residency policy, the Flemish Literature Fund works closely together with the international literature house Passa Porta, the Nederlandse Taalunie (Dutch Language Union) and the Dutch Foundation for Literature:
About 15 writers a year are invited to undertake a residency in Belgium. The writers are offered the opportunity to work on a manuscript and to familiarise themselves with Flemish and Belgian culture and literature.
About 5 Flemish authors per year can enjoy a work residency abroad.
