7-Day Writing Residency

Your fees include accommodations and catered meals. Ferry cost and booking times are at your own discretion. A self-directed residency is a low cost alternative if you just need time away to focus on your writing. There will be no instructors or workshops, but you will have plenty of time to write, read, walk, and explore the Island, while in a community of writers. Shared bedrooms can have 2-3 people of your choice, or you can request a roommate of the same sex. If you desire to have your own space, then apply early, as the single rooms are usually booked first. There are two single occupancy twin beds available, and up to three single occupancy King beds in larger lake-view bedrooms. There is a maximum participation of 10 writers.

14-day Writing Residency

You can combine sessions 3 and 4 into a two-week writing residency. Please go to the fees page for a break down of the costs.
