Open: 3rd DISQUIET International Literary Program – Lisbon, PT

Dzanc Books, in partnership with the Luso-American Development Foundation, has announced its third annual summer DISQUIET International Literary Program, in Lisbon, Portugal, for North American writers.

A call for entries is now open for the Dzanc Books/Guernica International Literature Award contest for poetry, fiction, or nonfiction, by a North American writer that addresses themes or settings beyond the U.S. and Canada.

The winner will receive airfare, accommodations, and tuition to the DISQUIET summer program taking place from June 30-July 12. The winning piece will be published in Guernica, a magazine of art and politics. The recipient will also receive a full scholarship to the two week 2013 DISQUIET writing workshops and cultural programs.

A collaboration between Dzanc Books and the Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) has also made possible four full scholarships for writers of Luso descent from North America to attend the ILP in Lisbon in 2013.

To be eligible for the scholarship, entrants must be residents of the United States or Canada who have a genealogical link to a Lusophone country. The four winners will receive airfare, accommodations, and full tuition to the 2013 ILP in Lisbon to attend Katherine Vaz’s multi-genre workshop “Writing the Luso Experience” with other writers from Portugal and North America. Runners-up will be offered partial tuition scholarships.

Established in 2011, the Dzanc Books/CNC DISQUIET International Literary Program has hosted 60 North American and international writers. Through the program, they have met Portuguese writers, including José Luis Peixoto, Patrícia Reis, Jacinto Lucas Pires, Gonçalo M. Tavares and António Lobo Antunes.

The entry fee is $15. The deadline for submissions is January 31, 2013.
