For the third time, La Muse is offering a three-week residency to an NWP (graduates of the University of Iowa's Nonfiction Writing Program) alumni. This year’s residency will run from October 12 to November 2, 2010.
Transportation and meals are not included. Robin Hemley and David Hamilton led a group here on an Overseas Writing workshop several summers ago. Prior recipients have been Tom Montgomery-Fate (NWP ’86) and Brendan Wolfe (NWP ’99).
You can read more about the retreat here and more about Tom and Brendan here.
To apply for the residency, please send a writing sample of no more than 3,000 words (preferably of a work in progress) to firstname.lastname@example.org with a cc: to Hope Edelman at: email@example.com. Put “La Muse Writing Residency” in the subject line, and please include a cover letter describing the work you’d like to do during your time here. The deadline for submissions is May 20.
We will take part in the judging. A winner will be announced by June 15.
