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 a private cottage with a full kitchen, bedroom, bath, and porch. The cost of the residency is $300 per week or $1,000 for four weeks; residents are responsible for their own transportation and meals. Submit up to five pages of poetry or 10 pages of prose, a project description, a résumé, and two letters of recommendation 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.
