Our sponsor Mineral School is in the midst of receiving applications for their 2017 fellowships. Let's see if any of these describe you: an early or mid-career writer of fiction, non-fiction, or poetry? A writing parent of a child under 18? A visual artist? There are residencies for you, spanning from full subsidized one-week stays, to two week residencies for the remarkable price of $425.
Oh, and they feed you. And have visiting writers come through. And you live in an old schoolhouse in Mineral Washington, a lakeside town with a sterling view of Mount Rainier. It's a totally unique, wonderful, and productive way to hunker down and focus on writing, and writing alone. On our sponsor's page, see what Washington State Poet Laureate Tod Marshall write about his stay at Mineral School.
Want to know more? Mineral School will be appearing on January 29th, with Hugo House, and others, at the Seattle Public Library in a session called "Residencies Revealed: Writers and Programmers Tell All".
Sponsors like Mineral School make the Seattle Review of Books possible. Did you know you could sponsor us, as well? Get your stories, or novel, or event in front of our passionate audience.
