The Heaney-Miłosz Residency – Call for Applications
The Heaney-Miłosz Residency – Call for Applications

The Estate of Seamus Heaney, together with Krakow Festival Office and the Embassy of Ireland in Poland, have launched a new Literary Residency at the apartment of the late Nobel laureate Czesław Miłosz in Krakow, Poland.  Heaney visited Krakow many times, including visits to Miłosz at his apartment. To celebrate the connections between the two Nobel Laureates, the new Residency programme will provide a basis for deepening the many existing literary links between Ireland and Poland.   


The Heaney-Miłosz Residency will support an emerging writer, resident in Ireland, with both the creative space and time to focus on their writing.   The selected Residency writer will be supported to undertake a Residency at the Czesław Miłosz apartment in Krakow for a period of 4-6 weeks in autumn 2023.


A Call for Applications has been launched, which will be assessed by an Evaluation Board comprised of three Irish members and three Polish members, each representing literary and cultural organisations in Ireland and Poland respectively. . Following evaluation of applications received during the Call for Applications, it is expected that the first Residency recipient will be announced in December 2022.


Full details in relation to the Residency programme, and how to apply, are now available at literaryresidenciespoland.pl.
