Four of the residencies will take place in Brno and five in Prague. The successful applicants this year include translators from Germany, Austria, Macedonia, Russia, Ukraine and Korea.

Two one-month stays were reserved for foreign authors. Out of the fourteen applications, the committee chose British author, Lucy Duggan, and French writer, Pierre Cendors. In June 2018, Duggan will be staying in Brno and Cendors in Prague.
