Keep St. Pete Lit offered a two-week residency from April 8, 2018 to April 22, 2018, to a poet, fiction writer, or nonfiction writer at the Crafstman House in St. Petersburg, Florida. The resident was provided with a private room, work space, and a $1,400 stipend. The resident was expected to conduct a master class or workshop for local writers during the residency, as well as give one public reading at its conclusion in conjunction with the Sunlit Literary Festival. To apply, writers submitted 5 to 8 poems totaling 8 to 10 pages or up to 3,000 words of prose, a statement of purpose, and a curriculum vitae with a $20 application fee by December 15, 2017. A limited number of fee waivers were available for writers under economic duress; writers applied by November 15. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
