Cultural Journalists Study Visits

Wednesday 18 October 2006 by Maria Velichkova

The experience of the ETE grants program shows that there is a strong interest in the intellectual and publishing production of the region, which outweighs to a great extent the level of mutual knowledge. Thus, the Cultural Journalists Study Visits project aims to fill that gap, providing an opportunity for direct encounters of cultural journalists with the publishing and literary arenas of those countries, as well as to provoke a wider public response. The mechanism of support is travel bursaries, enabling journalists from the region to visit another CEE country and study the publishing industry there, to meet colleagues, publishers and other actors in the field and come up with a series of articles to be published in their country of origin.
