The City of Santa Monica’s Cultural Affairs Division is seeking proposals from writers living in Los Angeles County for their Writer Residency Program at the Annenberg Community Beach House. The program offers writers a private, beachfront office for nine weeks to complete a work-in-progress and the opportunity to engage the public in aspects of their work through readings, events, and the Residency blog.
Eligibility: The residency is open to all writers of fiction, poetry, plays, and screenplays. Projects in biography/memoir, essay and nonfiction are not eligible. Also not eligible: artists who have received a Beach House Residency in the past two years, or are currently arts grantees or resident artists through another City of Santa Monica program, or are currently employed by the City of Santa Monica. The residency will be awarded to one writer. Writing teams will not be considered.
