Residency for Writers in Amsterdam
Scholars, Translators, Authors
In 2006 the Amsterdam Writer’s Residency opened its doors. The project was initiated by the Dutch Foundation for Literature. The foundation made living space available for foreign writers in the heart of the old city. This means the writers in residence find lodgings not only in the historic and literary heart of Amsterdam, but also at its academic centre, with access to the University of Amsterdam library and everything that is on offer at Athenaeum Bookshop, the downstairs neighbour.
