Thinking about applying to a writing residency in 2016? Although some deadlines have already passed, there are still quite a few upcoming ones, especially outside of the US. Denmark, Spain, Portugal, Iran, Canada, Italy, Sweden, Belgium, Thailand are just some of the countries in which there are still opportunities.
Of course, some of these writing residencies may have an associated cost for staying there while others may be free, and certainly there are application fees to be paid. However, if you are looking to experience a new environment and culture while having the freedom to write, then these residencies might just fit the bill.
Current listed deadlines start as early as today, December 15th, and go through to mid-2016. There are also listings for open calls to residencies in various countries, such as Iceland, Finland, China, Italy, Japan, and France.
