Article | Writer’s Digest: 6 Insiders Tips for Finding and Applying to Writers’ Colonies (Part II)

Article by Alexis Grant, managing editor of The Write Life

“Writers’ colonies are little-known treasures: they exist all over the United States and abroad, but many writers have never heard of them.

That’s partly because many of the writers who attend these residencies aren’t big Internet users. They spend their time writing — not browsing the Internet — which means they’re not sharing their experiences online.

But if you’re serious about writing, these residencies are not to be missed. Often set in rural areas, colonies provide a place to work and think in peace, without the distractions of everyday life. While many house three, 10 or even 25 writers at once, fellows typically interact minimally, often only at meals, leaving the bulk of their hours to create.” (An excerpt from the article.)
