This committee was born in 2003 and received positive answers from our foreign counterparts for participating at the “Rencontres” 2004. Since then, an active cooperation is going on with Spain and Portugal. The Federation has links with several places abroad: Dr Johnson’s House in London, the Latvian Literature Centre in Riga, the Petöfi Museum in Budapest which works for the promotion of the Hungarian literary patrimony (website: http://www.emlekhazak.hu), the Literature House of Quebec which became a member in 2008. It is also member of the International Committee of Literary Museums. In 2010 it organized, in partnership with Russia, a great exhibition about French and Russian writers' houses in Moscow.
It is now looking at building a network of writers' houses in Europe.

This committee was set up at the end of 2007. Its first mission: to pilot a study about the visitors of writers’ houses and literary places in France. This (qualitative) study about the public’s motivations was conducted in 2008 with twelve voluntary houses. The (quantitative) inquiry about the number of visitors in such places has been run at the same time. The results of both were published for the “Xth Rencontres de Bourges”.
This committee then collected information about activities proposed to the visitors (except pupils), to put them at the disposal of tourists and literary places’ managers on this site. It now works on the opportunity for the Federation to help the small writers’ houses to provide their shops through grouped orders, on means to improve the visit of the literary place, and on the French label Qualité Tourisme.
Person in charge: .
