If you select this option you will be under consideration for both the Fall and Spring residencies. This is not an application for a longer residency.

The 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.

• A 15-week Fall residency from September 3, 2018 to December 17, 2017
• A 15-week Spring residency from January 7, 2019 to May 2, 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.
