The Czech Writers Association joins together both poets and prose writers. The organisation was founded in 2015 by Czech writers who lacked a functional platform that would advocate living literature’s interests in the Czech Republic.
The Association promotes a professional approach to authorship and sees to its prestige. It aims to formulate professional concerns with respect to state institutions and private entrepreneurs. In regard to publishers and other organisers of literary life, the Association seeks “fair-trade” conditions for authors, provides them with information and legal advice, and also serves as a place to share their professional experience.
The Writers Association functions also as a professional networking organisation, which offers patronage of foreign applicants’ activities connected with contemporary Czech literature and its representation, has a wide contact network in the contemporary regional creative domain, and is able to offer consultant service to foreign organisers in the area of writers’ mobility support, curatorship and such.
