M Literary Residency Programme | Shanghai and Bangalore
The M Literary Residency Programme has been established to disseminate a broader knowledge of contemporary life and writing in India and China today and to foster deeper intellectual, cultural and artistic links across individuals and communities.
The intent of the residency is to provide space and time primarily for writing and location-specific research. It is not to be used as base for travel in order to undertake research further afield.
- It is NOT a condition of entry that the applicant must already be a published author. Unpublished writers are welcome to apply.
- There are no nationality restrictions for applications. However, applicants should be over 21 years old and be writing in English.
See guidelines for the full conditions and how to apply.
