The selection committee of Other Words Macedonia, in a meeting held on the 25th of January, chose Kocho Trajchevski as the best candidate among six quality authors. He's an independent self-published author from Bitola, Macedonia, the author of a successful SF series written in English and one of the founders of Manuscript, an association that helps new writers in Macedonia.
His main interest lies in Military Science Fiction and Opera, but he also writes fantasy, autobiography and poetry, and works as a part-time columnist.
He will be in San Sebastian from 16th April until 16th June 2016.
The Other Words programme aims to establish a network of creative stays for European writers in small and minority languages through a network of partners from several European countries. The partner organisations of the Other Words initiative, promoted by Donostia Kultura and DSS2016, are the following: Donostia Kultura (Basque Country), Foras na Gaegile (Ireland), XOP-eXhange of art operators and producers (Slovenia), Youth Forum - Bitola (Macedonia) and Ljouwert/Leeuwarde 2018 (Friesland).
