Welcome to Stonington, Connecticut
In recognition of Merrill’s own contributions to Stonington, and his longstanding generosity, the fellowship provides living and working space and a $1,100 stipend to a writer to complete a project of literary or academic merit. Fellows are also hosted by local community members and organizations.
Our applications are open October-January for the following year.
Our application period is now closed, but will re-open October 2021 for residencies in 2022-2023.
