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.
This 15-week winter/spring residency will run from January 8, 2018 to April 27, 2018.
Please Submit: a writing sample of 10 poems, one novel chapter, a short story, or an essay of up to 20 pages; a one-page project description that includes what you want to accomplish with your own writing and your ideas for community literary service in Spartanburg; a résumé; and the names and contact information for two references.NOTE:
we have added a category for those who have already applied for the Fall residency and want to apply for the winter for an extra ten dollars. These will be checked by the Hub City Staff and any erroneous entries will be declined with no refund. If you didn't apply for the fall residency before June 15, 2016, please check the $30 Winter Residency fee option.
