In Residence at the Jan Michalski Foundation

file6z4xwirpi4wybucic2f

I’ve been excitedly settling in to my modernist ‘treehouse’ for a month-long stay at the Jan Michalski Foundation in Montricher, Switzerland, where I am a writer in residence over May.

It’s a wonderful programme – offering a beautiful library, accommodation and the time and space to write – and I was especially lucky, because my current book project Islands of Abandonment fell into their special concentration in nature writing.

If you are a writer or translator (and especially if you have an interest in writing about the environment, human impacts or sustainability), I highly recommend applying. It’s been fascinating to meet writers from all over the world (France, Spain, Korea, America…) and it’s an opportunity too for me to brush off my schoolgirl French.

Applications for next year open summer 2019. Find more information here.
