PEN Haiti annually organizes its Young Author Residence Programme at the Georges Anglade Centre. In 2013 the Centre will receive eight young authors both from a Port-au-Prince and from outside the capital city for a stay of 20 days. The residence offers an opportunity to the writers to create or refine a writing project within a timeframe and space specifically dedicated to creation and writing.

PEN Haiti organizes the young authors’ residence to help the participants grow as writers. In order to further support the young authors the Centre also introduces them to PEN members, cultural operators and the general public as part of the residence programme.
