We’ve teamed up with Good Contrivance Farm for a 2nd time! We’re sponsoring two (2) writers each for a 1-week stay and a travel stipend to the Good Contrivance Farm Residency in Maryland. (See below for more photos)
2 applicants will be chosen
1-week stay per person (valued at ~$900)
Total Value: $1100
$30 application fee
The farm is a lovely place and we support their ethos and the folks who run it. Ephemera understands how difficult it is to find time and a place to write, and we hope the residency will help two enterprising writers.
Applications open Sept 15.
The deadline for application is November 30, 2023.
Please ready your work and submit early.
Selections will be made by end of December and will be viable for 1 year upon.
Last Year's Residency Selections:
NOTE FOR PAID SUBSCRIBERS: Subscribers at the founding level or “Creative Genius” level can apply for the residency for free as a component of their membership benefits. All other paid subscribers, should they be selected, will be reimbursed their application fee in addition to receiving the $200 stipend.
What’s unique about our contest is that the chosen writers will have the option to schedule a week’s stay at their convenience at any time within 1 year of receipt of the award. We hope to allow for maximum productivity and to be as helpful as possible in setting up the residency in this way. (Please note, some rules and restrictions apply).

Ephemera will base our selections on writing samples submitted to the contest (according to guidelines found here) and the optional personal statement. We will read submissions blind. Also we follow CLMP contest standards. We're looking for great, clever, polished work that shows promise and a love for craft!
