The Adirondack Center for Writing offers a residency from September 25 to October 9 to six poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers at a lodge on Twitchell Lake in the Adirondack Mountains in New York. Three of the residents will be chosen from the Adirondack region and the other three from anywhere in the world. Residents are each provided with a private room, private bathroom, work space, and all meals. There is no cost to attend the residency, but residents are responsible for travel expenses to and from Twitchell Lake. Using only the online submission system, submit a writing sample of up to 10 pages with a $30 application fee between April 15 and May 15. Visit the website for more information.
