ABOUT THE RESIDENCY
The James Merrill House Writer-in-Residence Program offers several residencies. In recognition of Merrill’s own contributions to the Stonington community and his longstanding generosity to fellow writers, the fellowship provides living and working space to a writer to complete a project of literary or academic merit.
We offer six residencies a year and $1,100/ month stipend.
LIVING AND WORKING IN THE MERRILL APARTMENTS
We ask each Writer-in-Residence to present a reading of their work during their time here.
We can also assist in arranging workshops, school appearances, or other literary activities in the community.
