India | Sangam House residencies for writers


Sangam House in India offers an annual residency programme for writers from around the world. Applications are now invited for the 2013-14 season of residencies.

The intention of Sangam House is to bring together writers from around the world to live and work in a safe, peaceful setting, a space made necessary on many levels by the world we now live in. Our residency programs are designed for writers who have published to some acclaim but not yet enjoyed substantial commercial success. Sangam House seeks to give writers a chance to build a solid and influential network of personal and professional relationships that can deepen their own work, in effect, expanding and diversifying literature. We believe that literature can and must remain a thriving force of illumination for our times.

All applications must be received by July 31, 2013

The application period for the 2013-2014 season is now open. Click here to apply.
