Entry Fees

$35 entry fee


The fellowship winner receives a two-week residency in a private writing suite. We provide uninterrupted writing time, a European-style gourmet dinner five nights a week served in our community dining room, the camaraderie of other professional writers when you want it, and a community kitchen stocked with the basics for other meals.


The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow is offering a fellowship to a writer working on non-fiction focusing on managing mental illness. This personal story should offer insight, awareness, and hope. Writing can take the form of memoir, personal essay, profile, or biography. The successful application will demonstrate insight, honesty, literary merit, and the likelihood of publication. Residency must be completed by December 31, 2022.
