I am a fiction writer. I will be working on several chapters on my novel-in-progress, The Homeland War, which explores social class and toxic masculinity at the outbreak of the Yugoslav Wars. I expect to write 20-30,000 words during the residency. I research and write for several hours a day, often punctuated by walks and cultural excursions.
