City of Asylum® Exiled Writer and Artist Residencies

Overview

The City of Asylum® Exiled Writer Residency Program 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 this sanctuary program is to enable each writer-in-residence to continue to write while transitioning to a stable, independent life in exile.

For two years or more, we provide our writers with a home on Sampsonia Way, a stipend, legal counsel, medical benefits, and access to professional development opportunities. Our program is effective: Each writer hosted by City of Asylum has created a full-length work while in residence, and has been able to continue to write and publish. Virtually all of our past resident writers have gone on to find full-time employment in the U.S.
