I-Park is now accepting applications for its fully-funded four-week autumn residencies. This multi-disciplinary program is open to writers looking to enrich their practice in a collegial, retreat-like setting – in the company of artists working in visual arts, music composition/sound art, moving image and architecture/landscape design.
I-Park residencies are open to writers and playwrights in all genres, including fiction, nonfiction, poetry, screenwriting, literary criticism and mixed media.
Located within a 450-acre nature preserve in rural East Haddam, Connecticut (U.S.), I-Park provides residents with private living quarters in a renovated 1840s farmhouse, a private studio, meals program, well equipped workshop and a modest library – as well as creative access to I-Park’s expansive grounds. Residencies are self-directed, undisturbed and non-judgmental. You decide what you’re working on and when.
Details and application forms are available at i-park.org. Applications are due May 20, 2019 and carry a $35 fee to help defray the cost of the selection panel. This year, I-Park will also be offering $500 travel grants to six international artists. For further information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 860-873-2468.
