Residency Programme for Fiction Writers and Poets | April-June 2019






A call to challenge cultural and racial stereotypes for authors with links to Africa.

Description of residency program

"Dentro la Terra" will be hosting up to two published fiction writers or poets in April-June 2019 as part of its first residency programme.

The residency will take place in the village of Arielli (+/- 1,100 inhabitants) in the Central-Italian region of Abruzzo, about 15 kilometers from both the Adriatic Sea and the foothills of the Majella mountain. Accomodation and work-spaces are located in a palazzo, which was long owned by wealthy Arielli landowners, with some parts dating back hundreds of years. Stretching out over three floors, it is surrounded by a large garden overlooking a forested valley, offering a lot of privacy and inspiration, while being in the village center. It underwent an extensive renovation in 2018 and is now ready to welcome guests. It is called "Dentro la Terra" in honor of the colloquial expression used by the locals to refer to the historic center.
