Ulysses’ Shelter: Building writers-in-residence network 2 is a literary residency network of five partners from Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Greece and Wales. The idea of the program is to combine literary residencies for young literary authors with a strong supportive program for local target groups. The residency program, with the priority of transnational mobility, will give young emerging authors an opportunity to work, perform and present themselves in different social and cultural contexts. The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
