Don't miss the 2/15 Mineral School deadline

Have you ever read an interview with a school? Neither had we before our disembodied consciousness reached out to ask sponsor Mineral School some important (and only slightly impertinent) questions.

Fits the bill, since Mineral School is the most unique, charming, and special writer's residency around. Hosted in an actual school (retired) for the small town of Mineral, Washington, it was built the same year that something very culturally significant happened in the sky above the new school (read about that in the interview). A classroom in this storied building could be your home and workplace a bit later this year. Even better, they feed you great food, and from everything we've heard, they know how to feed the soul of a writer, as well.

Don't miss out. February 15 is the application deadline for this year's residencies. Check out our sponsor feature page for the inside scoop on the program, and to read about the school in its own words.

Sponsors like Mineral School make the Seattle Review of Books possible. Did you know you can sponsor us, too? If you have a book, event, or opportunity you’d like to get in front of our readers, reserve your dates now. The spring is selling fast!
