The Vilenica CEI collection
The Vilenica CEI collection consists of works by writers who have, since 2006, been Central European Initiative Writer in Residence award recipients. This award is granted annually by the Vilenica International Literary Festival, in cooperation with the Slovene Writers’ Association. The award is given to young writers from CEI countries that are not yet part of the European Union – Albania,  Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia, Moldova, Serbia and Ukraine. The recipients are writers who are establishing themselves in their home countries – sometimes winning prizes – but who are unknown in the wider European space. The purpose of the award and of the present collection is to help readers discover exciting new literary voices of European literature as well as to strengthen cross-border cooperation and literary promotion.
