Food + Writing = Great Opportunity

The Duncan Eat-Write Fellowship Fellowship will be awarded to an author writing a cookbook or work of fiction or nonfiction that involves a love of food or healthful eating. This Fellowship provides a residency in the Writers’ Colony Culinary Suite equipped with full test kitchen. The Culinary Suite and test kitchen were designed, sponsored by and featured in Renovation Home Magazine.

The Duncan Eat-Write Fellowship is a two-week fellowship entitling the recipient to free residency at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow in the historic arts village of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Each resident has a private suite with writing space, private bath, wireless and/or cable hook-up, uninterrupted writing time, dinner prepared five nights a week and served in our community dining room, the camaraderie of other professional writers when you want it, and a fully stocked community kitchen for breakfast and lunch.

Residencies may be scheduled through December 10, 2009 only, and may be split into two separate stays. Fellows may elect to stay additional time at the reduced rate of $315 a week.

Please note: This Fellowship will be awarded on a rolling entry basis, so applicants are encouraged to apply early. Final application date for entry to be postmarked is September 10. Fellowship applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable $35 application fee. The Fellowship will be awarded no later than September 30, for fellowships to be scheduled through December 10, 2009.
