A call to writers for the 2017 M Literary Residency


A Call to Writers for the 2017 M Literary Residency

For 6-8 weeks in 2017, two writers, one in Shanghai and the other in Beijing, will have the opportunity to write undisturbed in the heart of these two bustling cities. 

The residency is open to writers of prose or poetry, fiction or nonfiction and screenwriting. The M Residency allows writers with an interest in China to deepen their understanding of this vital and fascinating place. 

Established in 2009 and fully funded by the M Restaurant Group, the M Literary Residency has its roots in M's Shanghai and Beijing Literary Festivals, and aims to foster artistic, cultural and intellectual links between individuals and communities. From 2009 to 2016 the Residency included one resident in Shanghai and one in India. 

Starting in 2017, there will be one resident based in Shanghai and one in Beijing.

All submissions are due by January 2, 2017 GMT midnight and must be in English or include an English translation.
