International Writers’ and Translators’ House (Ventspils House)

The aim of the establishment of the International Writers’ and Translators’ House or Ventspils House is to create a multifunctional international writer’s and translator’s centre, which promotes the development of literature, encourages cross-cultural dialogue and introduces the Latvian literary process to international circulation; to facilitate the decentralisation of the development of literature in Latvia by fostering a suitable cultural environment in regional Latvia.

Ventspils House offers writers and translators:

  • A place for creative work in one of the most beautiful Latvian cities on the Baltic Sea coast-Ventspils.

  • The opportunity to live and work at Ventspils House for four weeks

  • To discover Ventspils- a city in which history meets the future, and the Baltic Sea Coast-one of the most beautiful and inspirational coast lines in Europe.

  • To meet with other writers and translators from Latvia, the Baltic States, Europe and the world.

  • The opportunity to become involved in creative collaborative projects such as festivals and seminars.
