Our 27th annual session runs from

Saturday, July 11th to Wednesday, August 5th, 2020

Application deadline: April 30th 

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.

Note: Should the PSP be postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak all acceptances and scholarships will be postponed to the following year! It has also always been our policy that students wishing to postpone their participation to a future session for any reason, including fear of travel directly after a pandemic, can do so without losing their scholarship. Applying now is therefore risk free!

And remember: 

  • there is 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)
