Writing Residency in Greece: Calling For Applications

This is from Rosemary’s House, a very cool residency program in Greece that offers workshops for writers. They have priority reviews available for anyone who applies before April 1, so have a look at the chance to write, work, and connect on an island rich with inspiring history.

Join us for a life-changing writing workshop residency at Rosemary’s House, in a location that the ancients used to call “phlegra” or “land of fire” in Greece.  With the support of esteemed mentors you’ll hone your craft in the company of just 13 select writers from around the world.

Whether you are working on a novel, memoir, play, musical, collection of poems, screenplay, pilot, or other genre-bending pursuit, this is an opportunity to propel your progress alongside a group of exceptional peers. 

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis and will close on May 1st, 2023.
