ULYSSES' SHELTER: BUILDING WRITERS-IN-RESIDENCE NETWORK organizes literary residences for young writers, translators, and editors. The project began at the end of 2018. It’s organized by Sandorf publishing house from Zagreb, in partnership with Slovenian Writers' Society (DSP) from Ljubljana, Literary association “Krokodil” from Belgrade, Literature Across Frontiers (LAF) from Wales, and publishing house Thraka from Larissa. Each resident spends three weeks on each location, 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.
This is a video of the residents that stayed in Larissa in 2021 and, during their stay, participated in the international Thessalian Poetry Festival: the residents Grug Muse and Uroš Prah, and guests of the program Ana Svetel and Denis Škofič.
The US program in Greece is funded by Creative Europe, the Ministry of Culture of Greece, and the Municipality of Larissa.
The video was made by Dimitris Vallas and Alexandros Chartonas.
