Vacancy in Literature

Göl Yazıevi is a two-story residence for writers in the historical village of Gölyazı, located at a peninsula that stretches into Lake Uluabat (Lake Apolyont) in Bursa. The village dates back to the 4th century B.C., when it was home to the ancient Greek city of Apollonia. The house integrates well into town and local people, and neighbours St. Panteleimon Church which has recently been restored and converted into a cultural house. It includes nearly 100 square metre of usage area; two separate rooms with a single bed, writing desk, wardrobe, TV and A/C, a shared bathroom, kitchen, washing machine, iron and hair-dryer. The residence is managed by the local government of Nilüfer that is committed to investing in culture and the arts. The municipality stands out with its public libraries with extensive collections where writers, poets, translators occasionally come together. The libraries support the reader with information and document management services in international standards.
