Storyknife Writers Residency is currently being developed on ten acres of land outside of Homer, Alaska. We just can't wait for all six proposed cabin and main house to be built, so the Board of Directors of Storyknife is beginning with a single Storyknife resident who will live in the beautifully appointed cabin on the property. Women writers can apply for a 2 week or 4 week residency during the months of June, July, and August in 2018. The successful candidates will receive a $250 per week stipend at the end of their residency. This money can be used to cover the costs of travel, food, and a rental car if the resident is from out of the drivable area. The resident will need to purchase and prepare their own meals, with the exception of a welcome dinner and a farewell dinner, at the beginning and end of their stay. Our application period will be active from November 7 - December 31, 2017. Notifications will be sent by the end of February 2018 at the very latest.
Ends on December 31, 2017$30.00
You will answer three questions (each answer 300 words or fewer). 
  • How have you sought to educate yourself as a writer? 
  • What is your experience with publishing your work? 
  • What project will you pursue while in residency? (Please note that you will be free to work on whatever writing you wish during residency. We simply are interested in what you think you'll be pursuing.)
You will need a writing sample not to exceed 15 pages (prose: double-spaced 12 point font, poetry: single-spaced 12 point font acceptable).

Any writing samples with identifying material will be disqualified. This is a blind jurying process.

Notification will be by email by February 15, 2018 at the latest.
