Literary Residencies Košice (Slovakia)

Literary residencies Košice is a new residency programme based in a cultural heritage building from the 18th century in the historical center of the city that also houses the Sándor Márai Museum dedicated to the work of the Hungarian writer and his brother, the film director Géza Radványi, whose family had rebuilt the house in 1913 as the family’s residence.

The literary residency programme was established by the National Minorities Club, which has its headquarters in the building, and a collective of young writers and cultural professionals who curate the literary programme in the nearby art house cinema Kino Úsmev. The programme co-operates with the national Slovak Literary Centre (LIC) as well as with a number of small cutting-edge cultural initiatives in the city and the country. The programme works with both established writers and translators and up-and-coming and experimental authors.
