Every year Passa Porta receives five foreign authors for a residency in Brussels. We create the ideal work environment for their literary project, in the research and writing phase.

What does it consist in?

Every year Passa Porta receives – in addition to 4 author-curators – 5 foreign authors for a residency in Brussels, for a total period of 28 weeks. We create the ideal work environment for their literary project, in the research and writing phase.

As writer-in-residence you stay for a minimum of four and a maximum of eight weeks in a spacious apartment, you receive a weekly allowance and you have a computer, an Internet connection and a printer at your disposal.

In addition, Passa Porta actively will actively involve you in Belgian cultural life and the network of the house of literature.

We ask you to leave behind a literary trace in the form of a creative text about your stay in Brussels and to be open to a meeting with your audience in Belgium. These services will be properly remunerated.

These residencies take place by invitation or in collaboration with our international partners.
