Independent Residency
A three-week stay at Dom Tvorchestva
What is an independent residency
The residency programme grants selected participants — writers, translators, artists, researchers, and musicians — a stay in Dom Tvorchestva over a three week period to work on a literary writing, translation, critical text, or other creative project. The programme runs several times a year and hosts up to eight residents at a time.
Who is eligible to apply
We invite applications from poets, fiction and non-fiction writers, playwrights and screenwriters, and translators. We are also open to any other discipline as long as literature is at the heart of the project — we accept applications from artists, musicians, museum curators, etc. It is also possible for groups of 2-3 people to apply for the residency to prepare a project.

Residents must be at least 18 years of age and of any citizenship.
How to apply
The application for an individual residency must include a CV, links to published works or artistic portfolio, and a letter of recommendation (if applicable).

You can apply for each type of residency once a year. It means that you can apply for both an individual residency and a research residency within the same year, but you cannot apply for several independent residencies.

Alumni of previous residencies are also eligible to apply.

  • Single or double rooms in the Dom Tvorchestva newly renovated hotel
  • Three meals a day
  • Workspace
  • Tickets to Moscow and back
  • Dinner gatherings with other residents
  • Meetings with editors, publishers, literary agents and organisers of literary events
  • Tours and bikes
    Expectations towards the resident

    • Hold a public event during their residency (public readings, lectures, workshops, meet-the-author events with general audience and locals)

    • Participate in meetings at dinner, including with invited guests

    Application deadlines
