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’re looking forward to most this 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, set to take place the weekend of July 20-22 at the secluded Crystal Cottage in Rhinebeck, NY. There, we will bring together four residents to hold conversations surrounding our current topic, “Power And,” and workshop their pieces for publication in our eighth issue. New this year, accepted residents will be sharing their intended piece for Issue 8 with their cohort and the TSW editors ahead of the weekend, to be workshopped during the residency.

Building upon the success of last year’s first-ever sunset soiree, we’ll also once again be inviting 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 will get the chance to present their work alongside past contributors and renowned writers alike in a historic barn setting. See images from our past 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.
