Ulysses' Shelter: building writers-in-residence network

organizes literary residences for young writers, translators and editors. The project will begin at the end of 2018 at three locations - in Ljubljana, Larissa and in Pomena on the island of Mljet, organized by Sandorf publishing house from Zagreb, in partnership with Slovenian Writers' Society (DSP) from Ljubljana and publishing house Thraka from Larissa. Each resident will spend three weeks on each location from December 2018 to October 2019, and the idea of the project is to gradually extend the network of partners to other European countries in the future and to bring together artists from around the world and expose the creative potential of various European locations.
Tovar.hr is the main means of informing about the Ulysses' Shelter project - about the residents, their work, and events within the project (readings, workshops, conferences and social events with residents).

Literary association KROKODIL

KROKODIL is an acronym in Serbian that stands for Literary Regional Gathering That Alleviates Boredom And Lethargy. Association KROKODIL is dedicated to production of literary, cultural and sociopolitical programs and projects with the aim of developing literary audiences and those that are interested in culture, promotion of the culture of dialogue, reconciliation and reconstruction of the broken links, particularly in the region of the Western Balkans, as well as deepening of the mutual understanding and the acceptance of differences in the European context and elsewhere.

The association was established in 2009, coinciding with the premiere of the literary festival KROKODIL in Belgrade. Ever since then, the festival is a regular, annual event that happens each June in the open-air arena in front of the Museum of Yugoslav History. Although originally a regional literary platform, the festival soon became more international and grew to become one of the most prominent, popular and recognised literary events not only in the region of the Western Balkans but also in Europe. In 2014 KROKODIL started a festival of literature and illustration for children called KROKODOKODIL, which helps raise a new literary audience by positioning literary production for children upfront, as well as the culture of reading with contemporary media.

The residency is situated in the Belgrade municipality of Palilula (Miše Vujića 7), near Pionir sports hall. The cozy apartment consists of a living room, bedroom, bathroom, and fully equipped kitchen. The flat contains all the things you might need for your pleasant stay. Conceptually, it is arranged so as to provide a pleasant feeling of homely atmosphere.
