CALL for Seneffe Literary Residencies (august 2022)

Chateau Seneffe

After two years of supporting translation through the awarding of grants, Passa Porta is delighted to announce that literary residencies (for translation and writing) will take place from 1 to 31 August 2022.

Supported by the Wallonia-Brussels Federation with the aim of promoting the translation of French-language Belgian literature and encouraging the international circulation of our authors, these residencies provide translators from around the world with an ideal environment: the renovated outbuildings of the Château de Seneffe (30 minutes by car from Brussels), a serene place in which to work.

To support French-language Belgian translators as well, two places will be reserved for them. Two additional places will also be made available to French-speaking Belgian authors, so that they too can create in an environment that facilitates exchanges between authors and translators, with a view to building more bridges between professionals.
