KROKODIL’s Writer-in-residence project is the first residential program in Serbia intended exclusively for writers, translators and comic book authors. The program was launched in 2012 and since then we have hosted more than 90 authors from 21 European countries, and one of the direct consequences of this program is the publishing of eleven works by guest authors in Serbian language after their stay at the residence. Authors selected for the program are staying in a comfortable and well-equipped apartment in Belgrade and are also provided a monthly fee. The program has an open character – the Association KROKODIL determines with each author individually the desired directions of his or her stay. During the residency, readings, workshops or other promotional events are organized in Belgrade and other cities in Serbia, as well as meetings with local publishers, translators and language students from the Faculty of Philology in Belgrade and the Faculty of Philosophy in Novi Sad and their professors. In this way the visiting authors present their work and their culture to the audience in Serbia and make new contacts and collaborations, both with local publishing houses and with local authors. In addition, residents also have the opportunity to learn about the cultural and social life of Serbia.
