Writer In Residence




Writer in Residence programs host a writer who spends their residency interacting with the community. Writers in Residence usually offer individual manuscript consultations, as well as hosting public events. We encourage writers to make use of Writer in Residence programs in their community. If there isn’t a program currently in your area, some Writers in Residence may offer remote consultations. Visit the links below to find out more!
