Adirondack logo

The Adirondack Center for Writing offers a two-week residency annually in October to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers at a lodge on Twitchell Lake in the heart of the Adirondack Mountains.

Six writers are selected to take part in this intimate community of writers, half of the spaces are reserved for regional authors, and the other spaces are open to writers from all over the world. Quality of written submissions will be the primary consideration when accepting applications.

Meals are served family-style in the Lodge, and Residents are offered single rooms with private baths. There are no desks in individual rooms, but plenty of private and collaborative work space throughout the residence. Residents are encouraged to take full use of the hiking and paddling of the local area.

This residency exists to provide space, time and an inspiring landscape for regional and outside writers to work on their writing projects. With no cell phone coverage, this residency is a chance to unplug and connect with other writers, and to tap into the creative self.

The residency will be open to 6 writers every year, with three spaces for writers from the region, and three from elsewhere. Writers of all genres are considered.

Applications will be accepted through the online submission form between July 1-15, 2020. All applicants will be notified of the status of their application by August 15, 2020.
