  • no application fee
  • all applications are read by director Richard Katrovas and given feedback
  • scholarships are offered upon acceptance (i.e. there is no wait-period between acceptance and scholarship offer)

For the students who applied for 2020, we will be hosting free online get-togethers and symposiums during June and July to keep us all motivated and inspired while we wait. If you apply to the 2021 session before the end of July, you may also take part in these online sessions, provided we do not reach capacity. Please contact the PSP coordinator Ema Katrovas (ema.katrovas@gmail.com) for more information. 


The Prague Summer Program for Writers is a three-week summer workshop and writing residency that has been connecting creative writers with a concentrated, artistically rich learning environment in one of Europe’s most historic cities for over 25 years. During that time, our affiliations have grown and changed, as has our approach to the creative writing workshop, ensuring that every year’s program is fresh and reflective of growth and change as it appears on the literary landscape.
