Guidelines of assistance

City of Asylum Writer Residencies provide safe havens for writers at risk. City of Asylum Writers-in-Residence will participate in some or all of these programs during their residencies.


City of Asylum creates a thriving community for writers, readers, and neighbors. We provide sanctuary to endangered literary writers and offer a broad range of literary programs in a community setting to encourage cross-cultural exchange.
