A two-week residency is being offered by The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow for writers with children under 18 living with them. Thanks to a grant from the Sustainable Arts Foundation, this Fellowship is designed to support parents who are also writers.
The Fellowship entitles the recipient to a two-week stay at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow, in beautiful and charming Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Each resident has a private suite with writing space, private bath, and wireless Internet. The residency provides uninterrupted writing time, with dinner prepared five nights a week and served in our community dining room. Residents also share the camaraderie of other professional writers and artists when they want it, and a community kitchen stocked with the basics for breakfast and lunch. My Time includes the two-week residency and provides a stipend of $1,500 to help pay for child care or travel expenses or to make up for time lost at work.
My Time is not limited to a specific genre. Writers can work in poetry, memoir, fiction, nonfiction or young adult. Please include in the application package information about your family and how this fellowship will help you progress as a writer. No more than one page, please.
Deadline for applications is June 1, 2015, and the residency can be used up until June 1, 2016. Fellows may elect to stay additional time at the rate of $385 a week. Fellowship applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable $35 application fee. For an application form, email email@example.com or visit our website at www.writerscolony.org.
