MARGERY DAVIS BOYDEN WILDERNESS WRITING RESIDENCY
A unique opportunity for a writer or pair of writers seeking
a lengthy spell of unparalleled solitude for work and personal

house in the Rogue River backcountry of southwestern Oregon and
the support of a $5,000 stipend. The residency runs from the
beginning of April through the end of October. The residency
is open to poets and writers of all kinds, advanced in their
careers or just setting out. Publication credits are not

together in close quarters.
