What is CELA?

Meet the participants

Daniel Montoya Aguillón

Literary Professional, resident 2019-2023

It's very nice to find a space where we can rethink an old fashioned idea of publishing and make community with it.

Tadeáš Dohňanský

Translator, resident 2019-2023

It gives me the possibility to read new texts by emerging authors and translate them, which creates a very strong connection between me as a beginning translator and these authors.

Tereza Prymak

Translator, resident 2019-2023

It promotes and motivates young contemporary artists.

Mirt Komel

Writer, resident 2019-2023

CELA helps me internationalize my work, as well as get in touch with fellow writers.

Aya Sabi

Writer, resident 2019-2023

CELA is important to Europe because it works on a shared culture, literature and that will help Europe in constructing an identity based on differences.

Agata Tomažič

Writer, resident 2019-2023

CELA is important because translations into foreign languages never happen by chance.
