We welcome applications from writers of all backgrounds and experiences!

We accept applications on a rolling basis. To apply, simply complete the Statement of Interest form below. This form includes two short written reflections, one about your interest in the Idlewild Writers Retreat, and the other about your engagement in community. We do not require a writing sample or a project description. We understand that creativity is a fluid process, and that your creative projects may fluctuate between now and the start of the retreat.

In order to be considered for early registration rates, you must submit your Statement of Interest before the early registration deadline.

After we receive and review your Statement of Interest, we will follow up with you directly to discuss next steps.
