Artist & Writer Residency

Mission: Our mission is to connect artists and writers from around the world with the local community to inform, educate and empower people through art in the natural beauty of Northern Michigan.

For two weeks I have been alternating between moments of vast and unnerving productivity and moments of banging my head against these tree house walls. To any writers who read this in the future, remember that there is value in both – that the knocking sometimes dislodges in the imagination that which could never be found in stillness.

To the writers in residence

I have been able to enjoy the rare and rich gift of time to be, to rest, to take long walks, to make and to learn. This residency allows for much more than just space to work, it allows an opportunity to be slow, to look closely, enjoy the beautiful natural world, and return to the dailiness of life with a new energy and perspective
