Applications for our Third Annual Rhinebeck Residency are now closed.

The return of warmer weather signals a great number of things — flowers blooming, a chance to shed our heavy winter gear, and more opportunities for rooftop shindigs and breezy summer get-togethers. But one of the things we look forward to most each summer is our annual residency in Rhinebeck, where we retreat to the woods for a creative weekend immersed in nature and focus on the art and craft of the written word.

Applications are now closed for our third annual residency, which took place the weekend of July 20-22, 2018, at the secluded Crystal Cottage in Rhinebeck, NY. There, we brought together four residents to hold conversations surrounding our eighth issue, “Power And,” and workshopped their pieces for publication. New this year, accepted residents shared their intended piece for Issue 8 with their cohort and the TSW editors ahead of the weekend, and workshopped their work during the residency.

Building upon the success of last year’s first-ever sunset soiree, we also once again invited the TSW and Rhinebeck communities to take part in an al fresco reading and celebration on the last evening of the residency on Sunday, July 22, wherein residents got the chance to present their work alongside past contributors and renowned writers alike in a historic barn setting. See images from the 2018 sunset soiree here.

For those of you who are located on the west coast, we will be hosting our first Pacific Northwest Residency in February 2019. If you are engaged with and interested in the social issues of our time, stay tuned for further information.
