The Wassaic Artist Residency

The Wassaic Artist Residency exists to provide a genuine and intimate context for art-making, and we are thrilled to be given the opportunity to reopen the Winter Resident Application exclusively for writers!  We recognize the limited number of writers that live and work with us each season, and thus want to address that need.  We accept 1-3 month proposals for our Winter Residency Season exclusively for Writers (February-April). Residents are selected by a review committee composed of the board of directors and professionals in the field. They will be selected based on the quality of their work, commitment to their practice, and ability to interact positively with the community at large. Please head here for more information.
Deadline: Opens in December

Atlantic Center for the Arts Master Artist Residency
Location: New Smyrna Beach, Florida
The Master Artist Residency was the core program at our founding, and it has served over 3,500 emerging and midcareer artists from many disciplines. The residency is unique in that it is a mentoring program that couples prominent Master Artists with selected Associate Artists for three-week periods. Since residencies are process-based and not product-driven, time can be spent on previously existing projects, on new experiments, or on collaborations. The residency is also unique in that it focuses on creating conversations and the sharing of ideas between three disciplines per program, which can include visual artists, writers, dancers, and musicians as well as many other types of art. Please visit About the Master Artists-in-Residence Program to learn more.
Deadline: December 4
