The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow is pleased to announce the "My Time" fellowship funded by the Sustainable Arts Foundation. Writers who are also parents of dependent children under the age of 18 are invited to apply. Work may be any literary genre: fiction or nonfiction, poetry or prose, scripts or screenplays. The successful application will demonstrate literary merit and the likelihood of publication however, prior publication is not a requirement.
The fellowship winner will receive a one-week residency to allow the recipient to focus completely on their work. A $400 stipend is available to cover childcare and/or travel costs. Every writers’ suite at Dairy Hollow has a bedroom, private bathroom, separate writing space, and wireless internet. We provide uninterrupted writing time, a European-style gourmet dinner prepared five nights a week, and served in our community dining room, the camaraderie of other professional writers when you want it, and a community kitchen stocked with the basics for breakfast and lunch.
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 deadline is midnight on Monday, March 15, 2021. The winner will be announced no later than March 31, 2021. Residency may be completed at any time during 2021. This may be extended up to twelve months for extenuating circumstances including COVID-19 concerns.
The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow would like to thank Tony and Caroline Grant and the Sustainable Arts Foundation for generously funding this fellowship.
