The Among the Danes Program invites four foreign writers to Denmark, where, one at a time, for two weeks they will have the opportunity to live and work in a writing-conducive environment at Hald Hovedgaard side by side with seven Danish writers, translators, or illustrators.

The four writers who, as a sole author have had at least two books of fiction or poetry published will be selected based on their applications.

The residency is free for the chosen writers, they will be responsible for own catering, and will each receive a grant of 1.000 Euro to cover expenses for catering, travel etc.
