The Danish Centre for Writers and Translators proudly presents H.A.L.D. 2011 (Housing Authors & Literature, Denmark), the second “International Summer Residency for Writers at Hald”.
The H.A.L.D. program will select four fiction authors from abroad* to live and work alongside selected Danish fiction authors in Hald Hovedgaard’s main building during the period of July 18 – August 15, 2011.
The foreign authors will live and work at Hald under the same conditions as writers during a working residency at Hald normally do. Each author will work on the writing project that he or she has brought along to Hald and will be responsible for providing his/her own food and toiletries. The principal purpose of this international cultural and literary encounter is the informal meeting of professional writers, living door to door in an inspiring environment.
Participation in the H.A.L.D. program is determined by written application on the part of the author.
The application deadline is April 1, 2011 for foreign authors and May 15, 2011 for Danish
