Two- or three-week residencies during the month of March are offered to three women poets, fiction writers, or creative nonfiction writers at the Mount, Edith Wharton’s former home in Lenox, Massachusetts. The residents will be provided with a $1,000 stipend; dedicated private work space at the Mount, a Georgian revival mansion built in 1902; and lodging at a nearby residence with private bedrooms and bathrooms as well as shared communal space.
