Location: Shanghai, China

Mission: The M Literary Residency Program has been established to disseminate a broader knowledge of contemporary life and writing in 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.

Cost: Successful applicants will have their transportation costs to and from Shanghai covered, and will receive a total stipend of $1,000 USD to cover additional living costs during their stay.

Applicants are responsible for their own travel and/or medical insurance and travel

The M Literary Residency aims to encourage interaction between talented artists and local communities and to foster an interest in the arts within the local communities of the host countries. The successful candidate must agree to participate in at least two events within the local community during their stay. This could be a talk or workshop at a school, college or at M’s Literary Salon.

Application Fee: n/a

Number of Artists: Up to 2 artists per year

Accommodations: A studio-style apartment will be provided. Accommodation will be centrally located and in the thick of a noisy city. Whilst it is intended that the writer should be seeking a period of sustained work, it must be noted that this will probably not be happening in very quiet surroundings.

Length of Stay: It is expected that fellows will remain in residence throughout the three-month fellowship.

Demographic: (see medium)

Medium: Fiction, Non-fiction, Poetry, Dramatic Prose

Applicants do not need to be published authors – unpublished writers are welcome to apply.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. Applications will be accepted in the following genres only: fiction, non-fiction, poetry, dramatic prose. Past applicants are welcome to reapply.

Benefits: A studio-style apartment, interaction between talented artists and local communities, foster an interest in the arts within the local communities of the host countries, space and time primarily for writing and location-specific research, transportation costs to and from Shanghai covered, and will receive a total stipend of $1,000 USD to cover additional living costs during their stay
