GOETHE Istitut Recidency Program 2021: Writing Gender
  • Kigali (Rwanda)

As a collaboration between Huza Press and the Goethe Institut Kigali, they are announcing a four-week writers’ residency in Kigali (Rwanda) in September 2021. The purpose of this residency is to support writers as they complete or make significant advances with a work-in-progress novel manuscript. They are particularly passionate about literature as a space for opening up conversations about gender, its modes of construction, histories, representation and relationality to power: the theme of this residency is therefore writing gender.
