The Kerouac Project of Orlando will open the application period for their writers-in-residence program on January 1, 2017. It will close on March 12, 2017. Selected writers will be announced in late May 2017.
The Kerouac Project provides four residencies per year to writers living anywhere in the world. Each resident will live alone in the house for three months, where they may work on their writing project in uninterrupted peace.
Writers stay free at the Kerouac House and their utilities costs are covered. Each writer also receives a $1,000 food stipend for use during their residency. The writers are only required to participate in two events, a welcome potluck dinner held in their honor, and a final reading of their work at the end of their residency.
The residency slots are as follows:
Fall 2017: September, October, and November
Winter 2017–2018: December, January, and February
Spring 2018: March, April, and May
Summer 2018: June, July, and August
