The Copper Acorn Writer’s Post is a competitively selected, three-month residency that includes room and board. One writer is selected for the summer (June 1 - August 31), and one is chosen for the fall (October 1 - December 31). This gives writers the opportunity to concentrate on their craft by relieving them of need to pay for basic living expenses. The timeframe allows for substantial drafting, revision, networking, and job searching.
The Copper Acorn Writer’s Post provides an excellent environment in which to write. Our neighborhood is quiet, our home comfortable, and we supply healthy food. In the program’s first few years, the odds of being selected will be excellent.
In addition, this opportunity offers:
The process is blind except for the finalists, who are required to provide recommendations and participate in an interview.
The only requirement for participant is to blog once a week on the Copper Acorn Writer’s Post Blog.
The application fee is $99, and submissions are due March 1, 2024.
