In October 2017, The Seventh Wave began an exciting new chapter in its humble history by going bicoastal, with editors now based in both Brooklyn, NY, and Seattle, WA. As part of that transition, we also opted to expand our residency program to both coasts, continuing our annual Rhinebeck residency in upstate New York while kicking off our first Bainbridge residency on Bainbridge Island, just a short ferry ride away from Seattle, this upcoming February. The location may be different, but the atmosphere is no less magical: our west coast residency will offer an oasis of lush silence and space amid tall evergreens and a pitter-patter of rain so unique to the Pacific Northwest.

While applications for our 2020 Bainbridge Residency open Fall of 2019, applications for our 2019 Rhinebeck Residency open April 15, 2019. To see info about our east coast residency, click here.
