Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow – Fellowship / Due: August 5

The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow announces the 2024 “My Time” fellowship.

Writers who are parents of dependent children under the age of 18 are invited to apply. Work may be any literary genre: poetry, fiction, plays, memoirs, screenplays, or nonfiction. The successful application will demonstrate literary merit and the likelihood of publication. Prior publication is not a requirement.

Four fellowship winners will receive a one-week residency to allow the recipient to focus completely on their work. A $500 stipend will be provided to cover childcare and/or travel costs to each recipient. 

Each writer’s suite has a bedroom, private bathroom, separate writing space, and wireless internet. Writers’ Colony provides uninterrupted writing time, a European-style gourmet dinner prepared five nights a week, and served in the community dining room, the camaraderie of other professional writers when you want it, and a community kitchen stocked with the basics for other meals. 

Fellowship applications must be accompanied by a writing sample and a non-refundable $35 application fee. There is a limit of one submission per application. The submission period opens on Tuesday, May 14, 2024. The deadline is midnight CST on Monday, August 5, 2024. The winner will be announced no later than September 9, 2024. Residencies may be completed anytime before December 2025.
