Applications are now open for the Residences for writers in Switzerland 2020. Foundation Jan Michalski features an original group of seven residential modules that are available to writers, translators, and other creative individuals for residencies of varying lengths. Further, hanging from the openwork canopy surrounding the Foundation, these living spaces are called “treehouses” and offer ideal conditions to anyone looking to start, continue, or put the final touches on writing or translating project.
Moreover, the Jan Michalski Foundation for Writing and Literature was in 2004 in Montricher at the foot of the Jura Mountains in Switzerland. Vera Michalski-Hoffmann opened the foundation in her husband’s memory to perpetuate their common commitment to those who devote themselves to the written word.
