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).

Open Call for Book donations

Dear librarians and other book lovers,

The international literary residency Ulysses' Shelter on island Mljet would like to invite You to donate books for our International Library of Poetry.

The International Library of Poetry will contain a large collection of poetry books in as many different languages and connect the remote island with poets and readers all over the world.

We accept exclusively donations in poetry books (collections or anthologies) in any language, no matter how small or large they are.
