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).

A Poetry Class with primary school students on Mljet

Primary School 'Mljet' invited Jan Škrob, who is currently taking part in the residency program "Ulysses' Shelter" in the village of Babino Polje on island of Mljet, to be a guest of the 7th and 8th-grade students' English class. Primary School 'Mljet' has only about 50 students altogether, coming to school from various parts of the island, and they rarely have the opportunity to talk with a foreign professional writer about his working and artistic experience, but also about his experience of Mljet, the island which stands out in the entire Mediterranean with its exceptionally beautiful and wild nature. Jan talked about his poetry and the students were asking him questions about a variety of topics, interested in how the everyday life of a poet looks.
