Transportation and meals are not included. For the summer residency, submit a writing sample of 10 poems or a novel chapter, a short story, or an essay of up to 20 pages; a one-page project description, a résumé, contact information for two references, and a $30 application fee ($40 to apply to both the summer and fall residency) by April 15.
