Writers-in-Residency Colorado & Arizona

08 Sep

 You may have read recent blogs how to apply and where to find grants and free writers residencies, perhabs in Oregon, California or Washington State. Here are two more, both in National Parks, on in Colorado and one in Arizona.

Cabin @ Moraine Park

Rocky Mountain Ntl. Park, CO
The Artist-In-Residence Program at Rocky Mountain National Park offers professional WRITERS, composers, and visual and performing artists the opportunity to pursue their artistic discipline while being surrounded by the park’s inspiring landscape. Selected artists stay in a historic cabin for two-week periods from June through September.
During summer and fall the William Allen White Cabin is the home of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Artist-In-Residence.
The cabin above Moraine Park was the summer retreat of William Allen White from 1912 to 1943. A nationally recognized journalist and editor of the Emporia Gazette (Kansas), White’s spirit lives on with the contemporary artists who work in his cabin today.

The cabin has a high-beamed living/dining area with a large fireplace, one bedroom and bathroom, and a small kitchen. It is fully furnished including linens and kitchenware. Artists must provide their own groceries and may choose to bring personal amenities. During summer and fall the William Allen White Cabin is the home of Rocky Mountain National Park’s Artist-In-Residence.
Artists will present two 45-minute public programs during their residencies. This interaction can be tailored to an individual’s medium, interest, and experience using only a few hours of one’s stay. Programs can be demonstrations, talks, exploratory walks, or performances.
Be prepared to work in high desert, summer weather conditions that include high winds, low relative humidity and temperatures reaching 100 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and lows reaching roughly 40 degrees at night. Deadline for 2013 is March 15, 2013.
