Our annual residency now open for applications!
Each year, ACW brings six writers together at the historic Lodge on Lake Twitchell for two weeks of writing, reading, researching, and relaxing. A residency is a unique opportunity to focus on a writing project while also creating community with other writers. Did we mention this residency is free for selected applicants? We even cook meals and stock the fridge for you.
Applications open: April 10 – May 10, 2023
Decision Announcement: July 2023
Residency: Sunday, September 24 – Sunday, October 8, 2023
We hold 3 spaces for regional writers and 3 for writers living anywhere. Find your submission category HERE.
This residency honors the legacy of Anne LaBastille, author of the Woodswoman books. Half a century ago, Anne built a cabin on Lake Twitchell and lived in it, writing her books and studying the woods with her German Shepards. Anne’s will stated the desire to have writers gather yearly on Lake Twitchell, and ACW is proud to carry out that wish. You could be one of those writers… apply today!
