The Jan van Eyck Academie's writer-in-residence programme is a collaboration with the Dutch Foundation for Literature. Gerda Blees (1985) won the Nieuwe Proza Prijs in 2016 for her story Zomerkroos. Her short story collection Aan doodgaan dachten we niet was published in 2017 and her poetry debut Dwaallichten was released in 2018. This year her first novel Wij zijn licht (publisher: Uitgeverij Podium) came out, receiving rave reviews. 

Savas Boyraz (1980) focuses on portrait photography, documentary and fiction narratives. His work straddles the gap between nation state and cultural linguistic entities.
