RHINEBECK RESIDENCY I
July 29 – 31
Our third issue, Who Gets to Belong?, is open for submissions. You are welcome to submit at any point throughout the issue. We begin publishing pieces on August 8, and do so twice weekly for two months through the end of August. We keep our call for submissions open in an effort to allow people to add perspectives they deem are missing, or to respond to pieces we publish. But this issue, there is one deadline to be aware of. If you submit by July 7, you will be considered for our Residency in Rhinebeck.
We will be inviting four people to join us for three days of creation, meals, and conversation. You will bring the piece you submitted, and have time each morning and afternoon to write, and explore the 25 acres of land. Each evening, we will come together to cook, enjoy evening beverages, and argue passionately.
These four individuals will be our first four contributors. Based on your experience at the Residency, you’d revise your piece for publication.
To be considered, please also submit a 500-word statement of interest that describes what you would gain from this experience and what you would contribute to the atmosphere, as well as how you heard about us.
You must able to attend for the full three days (July 29 – 31). There are no exceptions to this. If your schedule changes and you become unavailable for the full three days, we ask that you immediately notify us so we can offer the space to someone who is able to fully participate.
While we welcome you to submit pitches to our general call for submissions, you must send us a completed draft to be considered for the Residency. However, we understand that process differs across mediums, so if, due to the nature or medium of your work, you are unable to submit to us a completed piece, we welcome you to submit a proposal, but please include a detailed explanation of your vision for the final piece, as well as examples of your work (published or from your portfolio), so we can get a sense of your work.
This Residency is open to creators of all kinds: writers, artists, playwrights, filmmakers, musicians, and more. We also plan to bring our featured artist for the Residency, so that they can harness the energy from the weekend and incorporate it into their expression of the issue.
The stay at Rhinebeck is free of charge, but you will need to take care of your transportation to and from the Residency. We enjoy communal meals, and so we also ask that you contribute with food, drinks, side dishes, or snacks.
Please also read our General Submissions Guidelines before submitting. Once you have read both, please submit your work to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put “Issue 3 Residency” in the subject line if you wish to be considered for the Residency. If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out.
