Writer in Residence / Residencies
February 1, 2022
Organization Name: Town Hall
Organization Location: Seattle, WA
Town Hall Seattle is seeking to work with one Artist in Residence (AiR) from March to May 2022. For our next AiR, we’re seeking a writer. Some of our past writers in residence have included Elise Chavez and Jordan Alam. We invite applications from both published and unpublished writers working in genres that may include poetry, fiction, non-fiction, journalism, and playwriting.
The AiR will be expected to attend TH events and contribute to audience engagement and the life of our community through activities that might include blogging about events after they take place, serving as an on-stage interlocutor or podcast correspondent, or curating an evening of programming. The AiR will produce two programs 1) an evening of work-in-progress; and 2) a final public event in which the artist shares what they worked on during the residency.
If you are a writer based in Seattle, or King County, we welcome you to apply.
