The Dorland Mountain Arts Colony offers residencies of up to 12 weeks year-round to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers in the secluded hills overlooking the Temecula Valley in southern California. Residents are provided with lodging and work space in one of two private cabins, each of which have a full kitchen, a bedroom, a bath, and a porch that overlooks the mountains. The cost of the residency is $300 per week or $1,000 per month; residents are responsible for their own food and travel expenses. Submit up to 10 pages of poetry or 20 pages of prose, a project description, a curriculum vitae, and two letters of reference with a $30 application fee. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis, but must be postmarked at least 30 days prior to the requested residency start date. Visit the website for an application and complete guidelines.
