Writers House offers three residencies per year in an historic cottage
in downtown Spartanburg, S.C. The program is open to emerging writers in
the United States who have completed a college degree in creative
writing within the past five years or are pursuing a graduate degree in
writing. Residents receive lodging, utilities, and a stipend; they are
responsible for their own transportation and meals. Our residencies
include a community service component of 15 weeks with the Hub City
Writers Project, and offer a stipend of $150 a week.
