We will be accepting applications for 2021-22 residencies from October 1, 2020 —January 10, 2021. 

 
 

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
