APPLY FOR A RESIDENCY

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.

Thank you for your interest. Our application period is now closed. We will reopen October 2021 for our 2022-2023 fellows. 

TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR FELLOWS

"It is always a gift to be given time and space to write and think, and my time at Merrill House was no exception. Access to Merrill's library was both a time capsule and a valuable education into another writer's mind; the quiet and scenic environment of Stonington and watching the fog roll off the waves each day helped center the work that I ended up doing."

Yanyi, Yale Younger Poet and 2019 Fellow
