APPLY FOR THE WIR

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 in search of a quiet setting to complete a project of literary or academic merit.

We will be accepting applications for 2021-22 residencies from October 1, 2020-January 15, 2021.

"My Writer-in-Residence month at the James Merrill House was a life-affirming experience, both creatively and personally. From mornings writing in the secret study to evenings watching the sun set over the water from the rooftop deck, every day felt like this perfect pearl of inspiration. "
