Writing Residency Partnerships
|Since 2011 Shake Rag Alley has partnered with the Council for Wisconsin Writers (CWW), Wisconsin People & Ideas, and the Wisconsin Poet Laureate Commission through the Wisconsin Academy of Sciences, Arts & Letters to offer week-long residencies to their annual writing contest winners.
In the tradition established by Edenfred, the Terry Family Foundation’s artist residence in Madison, contest-winning writers and poets are provided with a week of uninterrupted time to focus on a project of their choice.
|Between the months of November through April artists stay in Shake Rag's inspiring lodging facilities in the nurturing environment of historic Mineral Point’s artist community while participating in workshops, readings and community outreach activities.
Events in conjunction with the writer’s residencies will be announced throughout the fall and winter as scheduled.
