This residency is for a writer of international renown who comes to Cove Park for up to four weeks. During their stay the resident is the guest of honour at events in Edinburgh and Glasgow, and also has time at Cove Park to work on their own projects.

During her residency Anne Carson will be hosted at the Scottish Poetry Library, Edinburgh, for a reception and at the Centre of Contemporary Arts, Glasgow, for a reading event with poet Robin Robertson. She will also be taking the opportunity to see more of Scotland and to pursue her own projects at Cove Park.
