The laureate shall spend 2 months in Berlin writing and researching.
Partnership with the Centre national de littérature
Under the terms of this agreement, The National Literature Archives offers the opportunity to the laureate to write a “Bourglënster Ried” published in the collection Discours sur la littérature/Rede zur Literatur/Literary Talks series. Publication costs are fully covered by the CNL.
In the case of a partnership, the manuscript must be returned by December 31 of the year in which the grant is awarded. A fee of EUR 1,200 (one thousand two hundred euros) is paid to the Author at the time of publication. The Author will also receive 20 copies of the book, with a planned print run of 250 copies. Copyright in the publication remains with the Author.
On his return, the laureate may be invited to attend a professional or public meeting, according to the programme drawn up jointly by Lëtzebuerger Bicherfrënn and the laureate.
At the end of the residency, the laureate is required to submit a detailed report to Kultur | lx, which shall be shared with the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin, the National Literature Archives, and the Lëtzebuerger Bicherfrënn – Les Amis du Livre a.s.b.l. Failure to submit the report may lead to Kultur | lx demanding full or partial reimbursement of the grant.
The laureate consents that information about him/her (bibliography, excerpts) may be published on the website and in the communication materials published by Kultur | lx.
The laureate agrees to mention Kultur | lx and the Literarisches Colloquium Berlin during the presentation of the works resulting from this residency as well as in any communication related to this residency.
