Starting in 2021, Pro Helvetia expands its support for literary creation to texts in all languages: For the first time, authors writing in all languages can apply. This means that also Swiss authors who are writing in languages other than Switzerland’s national languages can submit applications for a literary creation grant (formerly literary work grant). The prerequisites remain that applicants are either Swiss citizens or permanent residents of Switzerland and are actively involved in the Swiss literary scene. A further novelty is that there will be two calls for applications a year, with deadlines on 1st March and 1st September.
