Second Feral Writing Grant

Hangar and La Escocesa announce a grant to carry out a residency during April, May and June 2020 to write, edit and publish an unpublished text in small or medium format. The call is open to all types of writing and editing modalities. From now until 26 January 2020 at 23:59 (GMT+1), the deadline for submission of applications is opened.

Hangar offers
– A studio in the 250 x 250 cm2 wooden cabin* located at Hangar’s garden, with access to the common spaces and the set of tools available in the centre. The cabin can be used at a schedule that is most convenient for the resident.
€1000 in fees to be paid by the end of the project.

La Escocesa offers
For the formalization of the final publication (fanzine, sheet, comic, magazine, booklet) it is possible to use a risography machine from La Escocesa. This is a printing process that uses as a basic principle the transfer of ink through a stencil (master). This technique prints one colour at a time (red, black, pink or blue) on spot inks and cold printing. Printing with a laugh requires being open to “embracing the nature of the beast” rather than forcing it to act as it happens with other techniques. In La Escocesa there are also basic binding tools. Production and manipulation will be carried out by the authors with technical support from La Escocesa. The publication will have its online version.

Application process
The candidate must send a single document not exceeding 10 pages in PDF format to carolina(at), with the subject line «Convocatòria Beca Escriptura silvestre 2020».

This document should include:

– Personal data (name, surname, date of birth, postal and e-mail address) of the applicant

Resolution: end of February 2020
