Writer in Residence

Hafid Bouazza talking with Reinier Salverda

The Department of Dutch at UCL hosts an annual Writer in Residence scheme.

The scheme is funded by the Nederlands Letterenfonds (Amsterdam). It allows a Dutch or a Flemish writer to spend up to six weeks at UCL, on an annual basis.

The Writer in Residence engages with students as well as staff in the Department, and actively contributes to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching.

In 2013/14 Wim Brands will be Dutch Writer in Residence at UCL Dutch.
