The centerpiece of our programs is a long-term residency for literary writers who are in exile from their home countries and under threat of persecution because of their writing. The goal of a City of Asylum® Exiled Writer Residency is to enable a writer to continue to write while transitioning to a stable, independent life in exile. This program provides a stipend and health care for two years and housing for up to four years.
Short-term exiled-writer residencies of up to one year. Primary candidates for short-term residencies are exiled literary writers already living in the US and who are on the verge of becoming independent.
