Arquetopia Writers Residency Oaxaca 2024 2025
This comprehensive, customized residency program offers competitive professional opportunities for emerging and mid-career, national and international writers, journalists, playwrights, translators, and graduate students age 20 and over.

As part of Arquetopia’s mission, we promote international experiences in the field of culture by promoting Mexico, Peru, and Italy’s rich and diverse artistic heritage. We are aware that understanding the local cultural context and complexity is key for a successful cultural exchange; therefore, the Writers Residency offers a flexible, mentored program that provides social and cultural research and aesthetic resources. In addition to the individual mentoring provided by our directorial and curatorial staff for personalized research assistance/resources, project guidance, and critique, participants of this program work independently in our spaces. All proposals are welcome.

We welcome writers from diverse genres: poetry, prose, drama, screen and playwriting, children’s literature, journalism including magazine articles and editorials; as well as translators and editors who are interested in creating work while experiencing specific cultural expressions from Mexico, Peru and/or Italy. Each residency is unique, based on the residency research needs and the writer’s proposal. Residents are chosen on the basis of artistic merit and evaluation of the proposed project.
