Submission Deadline: Friday, November 4, 2011, rec’d by 5:00pm
In celebration of Marion Davies’ support of artists and to further the work of artists in all disciplines, the Division has established an Artist Residency program at the Beach House. The Residency begins Monday, January 16, 2012 and concludes Monday, March 26, 2012 for a total of ten weeks.
The City seeks to provide an opportunity to writers who both need a place to write and are interested in sharing aspects of their work for the public’s benefit. This program is best for writers who will be able to use the residency period to finish or make significant progress in their work, and are able to hold weekly office hours and monthly critiques, readings, workshops or conversations with the public. If the applicant wishes to suggest other public activities in lieu of these, proposals are welcome. The City may also require the Resident to represent the Residency to the press. An honorarium of $1500 is offered.
The Residency is non-residential; no room/board is available. The City will provide a lockable office in the historic Marion Davies Guest House.
