The Writer's Residency is an bi-annual workshop / retreat in-the-making.  We invite applications from emerging and accomplished writers of all genres who would benefit from a focused amount of guided time to create a new work, complete a project, conduct research, or simply find inspiration amid the beauty of the Adirondack Mountains.  The Spring 2018 retreat will be led by the accomplished writer and teacher, Kate Moses.

The primary aim of the residency is to provide uninterrupted time and space to work among other writers.  Participants have access to a variety of office and studio and outdoor spaces in a thoughtfully designed environment on 78 pristine mountain and farm acres.  Participants are encouraged to exchange ideas and engage with the creative energy of the staff and fellow residents, explore the surrounding Adirondack region, and share their work with the local community through public readings.

Our Fall 2017 Inaugural Writer's Residency welcomes:  Alison Owings, Lorene Garrett, Jennifer Steil, Christian Barter, Deborah Michel and Ellen Sussman


PLEASE NOTE:  All residents are responsible for their own transportation and any personal materials or expenses.   Applicants are welcome to schedule a visit to Craigardan prior to applying.
