Denali National Park and Preserve in central Alaska offers ten-day residencies from late February through March and from June through mid-September to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers. Spring residents will stay in a rustic cabin located 43 miles into the park; winter residents will stay in a historic ranger patrol cabin located 23 miles into the park or at the park headquarters, depending on conditions. Residents are expected to donate a piece of work that is about the park or drawn from the writer’s experiences there, and to lead at least one public outreach activity in the park, such as a workshop or reading. Residents are responsible for their own transportation and meals. Using the online submission system, submit one page of poetry or prose, a résumé, and a writers statement by September 30. There is no application fee. Visit the website for an application and complete guidelines.
