Headlands Center for the Arts offers four- to ten-week residencies from March to mid-November to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers in the coastal wilderness of the Marin Headlands outside San Francisco. Residents are provided with a private bedroom and work space in a shared house, round-trip airfare, five meals per week, and a $500 monthly stipend. Students enrolled in a degree-granting program are ineligible. For residencies in 2020, submit a writing sample of up to 20 pages of poetry or 30 pages of prose, a letter of interest, a résumé, and contact information for three references by June 7. The application fee is $35 until May 15 and $45 thereafter. Visit the website for an application and complete guidelines.
