We would like to underscore the high calibre of the candidates, which will certainly make the final selection very difficult.
On June 30, the names of those selected to participate in the residency will be announced. They will be chosen by a committee that includes representatives from PEN Català, the Roman Llull Institute, and the Faberllull residency in Olot, with the support of representatives of the members of the European project.
