Hambidge offers residencies of two to eight weeks to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers on 600 wooded acres in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northern Georgia. Residents are provided with a private cottage with a bedroom, studio space, kitchen, and bathroom. The cost of the residency is $250 per week, which includes some meals. Scholarships are available. For residencies from September through December, using only the online application system, submit six to eight poems or up to 15 pages of prose, a 300-word biography, an applicant proposal, and a résumé with a $30 application fee by April 15.
