The Celia & Wally Gilbert Artist-in-Residence Program offers six residencies of one to three weeks year-round to poets, fiction writers, and nonfiction writers looking to “explore the scientific process and interact with international scientific staff and visitors” at the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory on the wooded north shore of Long Island, New York. Residents are provided with a dorm room, private bathroom, all meals, and a $1,000 to $1,5000 stipend, depending on the length of the stay. Submit no more than 10 pages of poetry or prose, including a brief statement about the work, a 2,000-word artist statement on the interplay between writing and science in your work, and a résumé. There is no application fee. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
