On the Radar—March 2018 Edition

 

Caldera. “Every winter from January through March, creative individuals, collaborations, and performing ensembles are awarded the gift of time and space at our beautiful Arts Center in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains near Sisters, Oregon, for 3.5 week residencies.” 

I loved my time at Caldera. I jogged every day, cooked, enjoyed the company of the other artists tremendously, went to a hot springs (I got naked in front of strangers!), worked on an essay and this story, and read Bret Hart’s autobiography. Apply. Deadline: March 15, 2018

Djerassi. “Each year, 70+ writers, artists, composers, choreographers, filmmakers and scientists are awarded the gift of time and space: a one-month residency on our 583-acre ranch in Northern California’s Santa Cruz Mountains. All at no cost to the artists.” Deadline: March 15

“The Kerouac Project provides four residencies a year to writers of any stripe or age, living anywhere in the world. In the past, we have accepted writers with no formal writing education alongside those with MFA’s and impressive résumés. You will be judged on the quality of the writing sample you submit. Each residency consists of approximately a three-month stay in the cottage where Jack Kerouac wrote his novel Dharma Bums. Utilities and a food stipend of $1,000 are included.”

I still dream about this house. I met such fantastic artists and generous, kind people here in Orlando. I worked diligently here. My husband even came down and we had 10 great days where I wrote in the morning while he rode a bike around Lake Adair. We sang Jack jingles. My Hedgebrook sis Carol visited and we talked so much and watched Stranger Things together. I read about Tainos, wrote about a boy hiding in Luperon’s mausoleum in Puerto Plata.I mourned the presidential election here, stuck it out through a thankfully not-bad huracan here. And more, and more. I left all that energy there so please apply and make your own memories and do good work.

Deadline: April 16
