Summer Residency at the Poetry Center

Since 1994, the Poetry Center’s Summer Residency Program has offered poets and prose writers an opportunity to develop their work and to discover all that Tucson has to offer. Two residencies are awarded each summer—one in poetry and one in prose—to writers at any stage of their careers. The residency includes a $150 weekly stipend and a two-to-four-week stay in a private guest house, located within steps of the Center’s renowned library. The residency is offered between June 1 and August 31. To enter, applicants must submit a resume or CV, a project proposal, and a work sample. For complete guidelines, visit poetry.arizona.edu. The deadline for application is December 17th, 2012.
