ArtsEdge Residency: April 30
April 6, 2010, Volume 56, No. 28

We’re pleased to announce we are accepting applications for the third year of the ArtsEdge Residency Project, a joint venture of the Kelly Writers House and Penn’s Facilities and Real Estate Services: http://writing.upenn.edu/wh/involved/awards/artsedge/. Applications are due by April 30.

The ArtsEdge Project offers a one year residency for an emerging writer. The residency includes a subsidized apartment at 40th and Chestnut, (writer pays less than half the rent), studio/writing space in the AIR Space artistic nexus, and close affiliation with Penn’s writing communities.

During the course of the residency, the ArtsEdge writer will be encouraged to develop at least one project at the Writers House.

Past residents have produced staged readings (http://writing.upenn.edu/wh/calendar/0109.php#22), organized panel discussions (http://writing.upenn.edu/wh/calendar/0310.php#25), and coordinated readings by other emerging authors (http://writing.upenn.edu/wh/calendar/1009.php#15).

Qualified applicants (with graduate degrees or appropriate experience) may also be considered to teach a writing course at Penn in the spring semester, depending on the funding year. Please note: teaching is not a guaranteed part of the residency.

To Apply: Submit letter of interest, CV or resume, writing sample (maximum 30 pages), personal contact information, and contact information for three references to residencyproject@writing.upenn.edu.

Please collect and submit all materials as one document (PDF or Word document preferred).
