Set in an 1850s farmhouse on 450 acres of an East Haddam woodland retreat, the I-Park Artists' Enclave offers residencies from May through November to writers, including poets, and artists who are working on a self-directed project. Most sessions are four weeks in duration. Work samples are evaluated through a competitive, juried process. A $30 application fee helps defray the cost of the independent selection panel. Accepted writers are responsible for their own work materials as well as transportation to and from the area. The program is otherwise offered at no cost to invitees.
I-Park will also be hosting a Family-Friendly Residency, an experimental program dedicated to artists with dependent children, with separate application deadlines.
The next deadline for a general residency is January 26, 2016. Visit the I-Park website for more information.
