Residencies | Apply

The Writer’s Room at The Betsy hosts authors (locally, regionally and nationally), artists and thought leaders year round. Residencies at The Betsy are typically Sunday through Wednesday.  In some circumstances, residencies can be a full week or more.  There is no charge to stay in The Writer’s Room. In exchange for the opportunity, visiting writers are asked to:

  • Write a creative summary of their experience for our blog,
  • Participate in a community event to introduce and discuss their work, and
  • Donate a recent publication (signed) to The Writer’s Room.

Artists evidencing need may apply for a per diem of up to $50. Travel to/from The Writer’s Room at The Betsy is not covered. Residents may bring their dogs if they weigh less than 25 pounds.
