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.
