Post #100 – Writer-In-Residence Programs


I am one of those people that obsesses about numbers. As in, I just had my 25th birthday and I’m probably going to have a quarter-life crisis. OR this is the third time I’ve overdrawn on my account. OR where the hell is the six train?!

So, I give you my 100th post – hurrah!

Writer-In-Residence Programs for Children’s Writers

For writers with at least one book published:

The Thurber House Writer-In-Residence program is for middle grade writers with at least one book published and less than three. Writers stay for four weeks at the Thurber House in Columbus, OH and teach middle schoolers at the Thurber Summer Writing Camp. They receiving lodging and a $4,000 stipend. Deadline is December 8, 2008 for the 2009 Summer residency.

For unpublished writers:

The Boston Public Library offers a private room in the library to work for 20 hours a week during a nine month period (September to June) and a $20,000 stipend to an emerging children’s writer. Applicants do not have to be previous published, but cannot have published more than three books. Applications are due by April 15th of the year writers would like residency.

Universities that have Children’s Writers-in-Residence, but do not have information on applying. (I assume these are appointed positions then — if anybody knows any differently, please let me know!)

Writer-In-Residence Programs for Adult Writers

For unpublished writers:

The George Bennett Fellowship at the Phillips Exeter Academy in Exeter, NH, boards a literary fiction, non-fiction or dramatic writer for one academic year and includes a $12,000 stipend. Writers-in-residence are not required to teach classes, though should be available to interested students in the creative writing program. Preference is giving to literary fiction writers, though literary non-fiction writers, dramatic writers and poets are encouraged to apply. The deadline is December 1st.

The Teachers & Writers Collaborative Fellowship provides office space and a stipend from October 1 to May 31. Guidelines for the 2009-2010 Fellowship will be posted by March 31, 2009.

I would love to continue to add to this list, does anybody out there know any writer-in-residence programs I may be forgetting?
