 Visible Communities residencies

We are offering two week-long residencies at Dragon Hall for a UK-based literary translator or translator-writer pair working with a diaspora or heritage language, with the support of the Francis W Reckitt Arts Trust.

We host writers and translators in our cottage at Dragon Hall. The cottage is a small house attached to the main Dragon Hall building. Downstairs it has a sitting room, study, kitchen and bathroom. Upstairs there are two bedrooms. Writers and translators in residence may also have access to additional writing space within the main Dragon hall building. Outside the cottage there is a small terrace leading to the Dragon Hall garden.
