In 2018, Strange Days Books & decided it was time to launch Eyelands Book Awards and Three Rock Writers’ Residency Program. This is an international contest that gives the opportunity to a writer to win a great prize; a holiday in Athens, Greece, where he/she will have the chance to talk about his/her work to Greek readers and meet Greek writers in a special ceremony and also gives the opportunity to an unpublished writer to win a contract and see her/his book published by Strange Days Books. It was high time for Greece to have an international book award.
