Harriman Residency for Displaced Ukrainian Writers
March 14, 2023

Displaced Ukrainian writers (journalists, translators, novelists, poets, graphic novelists) are invited to apply for a Residency for Displaced Artists at Reid Hall, jointly supported by the Harriman Institute, Columbia Global Centers | Paris, and the Institute for Ideas and Imagination. This program provides support for writers who have had to leave their homes due to the extreme circumstances of the War in Ukraine.

The year-long residency includes an annual stipend of $50,000 (paid in monthly installments), administrative support, and a small office space at Reid Hall, from September 2023 to June 2024. The residency offers time and space to one writer working on a long-term project. The participant will be invited to contribute to the activities at Reid Hall. These can take the form of public lectures about their work, exhibits, podcasts, workshops, or conferences.

Reid Hall is home to the Columbia Global Centers | Paris, the Institute for Ideas and Imagination, the Columbia Undergraduate Programs, and Columbia’s Master in History and Literature program. Located in the heart of Montparnasse, it partners with French and European institutions to engage students, faculty, alumni, and the general public across borders and disciplines.

To apply, please complete the application form. Candidates will be asked to submit a short CV, a writing sample in English of no more than 20 pages (if the English version is a translation, please also include the sample in its original language), and a 1–3 page project proposal on what they intend to work on while at Reid Hall.

The 2023 – 2024 application deadline is March 31, 2023.
