Welcome to Expat Sat, the culturally kooky, map nonspecific, sometimes bewildering, always fascinating intersection of expat life and writing. And where every Saturday, I offer tips for writing and publishing to expat writers around the globe.
Today I want to share an amazing opportunity for writers with an interest in China and/or India…a 3-month literary residency in one of those two countries that includes transportation to and from the country, an apartment, and a stipend.
Crazy good opportunity for writers, huh?
Told ya so.
From the Residency page at the “M on the Bund” website:
“The M Literary Residency Program has been established to disseminate a broader knowledge of contemporary life and writing in India and China today and to foster deeper intellectual, cultural and artistic links across individuals and communities. Applicants are invited to apply for three-month residencies in India or China.”
Applications for the 2012-13 Residency are now being accepted.
The application deadline is Friday, July 1, 2011.
Decisions will be announced October 31, 2011.
To find out more (and to download program guidelines and an application form), please visit M’s Residency.
So if qualify, scooch your patootie over to the site and apply. Come on…time’s a’wasting.
