Once again, thanks to a generous gift from Lynn and Jeff Callahan, the James Merrill House Committee will be offering separate week-long stays in the Jackson Apartment to two former fellows this July (Week One: July 1-7; Week Two July 8-14).
The deadline for entry is Friday, March 8 at 5 pm Eastern, and the two selected fellows will be notified by March 12th. The recipients of this special gift will live rent-free in the Jackson Apartment, and have access to the Merrill Apartment to work in during their stay. This is not a Merrill House residency, and the stays do not include a stipend. Returning fellows will not be required to do a reading or perform a community service activity. The offer is open to all former Merrill Fellows who had a residency prior to September 2018, exclusive of past recipients of these July opportunities. The selections will be made by random drawing.
Former fellows interested in applying should visit our Submittable page.
