Annual Anne LaBastille Memorial Residency Program

Hosted by the Adirondack Center for Writing 

After our successful one-week writers residency last year, we extended our residency to two weeks with six impressive writers.  The Adirondack Center for Writing hosted the residency at Twitchell Lake from October 10-24, 2015. This residency offered a quiet space to work on writing, and provided a space to work beside other writers. All our resident writers were inspired by the gorgeous setting in the 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. During the residency, the writers paddled out to visit her cabin, and explored the lake with locals. 

At this point, the registration process is closed. We'll soon call for applications for the 2016 Anne LaBastille Memorial Writers Residency. Stay tuned!
