ACW Gears up for 2nd Anne LaBastille 
Memorial Residency Program

After our successful one-week writers' residency last year, we're proud to announce an extended program this fall. We're hosting a full two-week residency at Twitchell Lake from October 10-24, 2015. This residency will offer quiet space to work on your writing, and allow you to share that space with other writers. Be inspired by the gorgeous setting and a community of talented writers. 

This residency was generously provided by the estate of Anne LaBastille, who wrote books like Woodswoman and Beyond Black Bear Lake from her cabin on Twitchell Lake. We'll paddle out to visit her cabin at least once during the week.

The point of this residency is to provide space, time, and an inspiring landscape for writers to work on their writing projects, a chance to unplug and connect with other writers, and to tap into your creative self. To that end, there is no internet or cell-phone at the residency, which is housed at this beautiful property on Twitchell Lake. Rooms are single occupancy with private baths, and meals are provided. 

At this point, the registration process is closed. We'll soon be announcing the writers chosen for the 2015 season. Stay tuned for information on the 2016 residency!
