Writer's Retreat at Sandy Bend, Florida offers two- and four-week residencies in November 2019 to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers in a secluded Sanibel Island home. Residents are provided with a private room, space and undistracted time. Resident authors will be responsible for their own meals in the shared kitchen and will meet for dinner each evening.
Authors will have an opportunity for an individual, private critique with Susan Gardner, poet, publisher and founding editor of Red Mountain Press.
The residency can be reached by island taxi. Bicycles and tricycles are available for rent and are the best way to get around the island.
There is no fee for the residency.
Using the online application system, submit 10 pages of poetry or up to 15 pages of prose, a project proposal, a professional résumé, and a $30 application fee by April 30.
