The annual Sarabande Writing Residency offers a residency to a poet, fiction writer, or creative non-fiction writer at Bernheim Arboretum and Research Forest, an idyllic 14,000-acre nature preserve near Louisville, Kentucky.
Residents receive a $500 travel stipend and a two- to six-week stay in a private, fully equipped cottage on the Bernheim grounds.
Residents offer one public reading or discussion during their tenure and may devote the rest of their time to writing in Bernheim’s extensive forest, gardens, and arboretum. Application deadline: Sept. 30 for summer 2016 residency. Apply online.
