The H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest offers one- to two-week residencies to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers in October and November in the Oregon Cascades, 40 miles east of Eugene. The residency is open to writers whose work “reflects a keen awareness of the natural world and an appreciation for both scientific and literary ways of knowing.” Residents are provided with a private apartment that includes kitchen facilities, access to the forest research site, and a $250 stipend. Using the online submission system, submit up to 10 pages of poetry or 15 pages of prose, a one-page project description, and a curriculum vitae by May 15. There is no application fee.
