La Maison Baldwin Residency

web site

Shortly before James Baldwin passed away, he told close friends in Saint-Paul de Vence that he dreamed of seeing his beloved house made into a writers' colony. This medieval village, with its uncommon light, its majestic mountaintop placement and surrounding countryside, has for centuries attracted artists, architects, alchemists and thinkers, great minds intent on changing the world. Here is where Baldwin wrote some of his most enduring books, including If Beale Street Could Talk, Just Above my Head, and his sole book of poetry, Jimmy's Blues.

Writers in residence are offered a room in the village center to pursue their current creative project. While in residence, they will contribute to the literary culture of Saint Paul de Vence by offering a community event or creative public program.

They are hosted at La Maison Baldwin Residence for Writers, a house in the historic center of St. Paul de Vence located directly across the street from the village church. The home features a 3rd-floor bedroom suite with a sunny terrace overlooking the tiled roofs of the village and the valley beyond.

Residents also stay in a charming artist cottage made available to the program through a partnership with the city of St. Paul de Vence.

Lunch every day is offered to the resident writers through partnerships with local restaurants and host families. The fellowship includes a $700 travel stipend.

Eligibility and How to Apply
This fellowship is open to emerging writers working in the spirit of James Baldwin. Eligible to apply are poets, playwrights, essayists and fiction writers with no more than one published book or staged production.

The review committee will select ten fellows for residencies of 2 to 4 weeks in fall 2020 (Sept 15 to Oct. 31) or spring 2021 (April 1 to May 15).

To apply, send a cover letter, a brief bio and writing sample of ten pages to residency@lamaisonbaldwin.fr with the subject line "residency application." The deadline is December 31, 2019.

Berkeley 2020 Summer Residency

web site

We invite artists to apply with projects that would benefit from a residency in Berkeley for 1–4 weeks. Berkeley Rep will provide transportation, housing, rehearsal space, basic technical support, and a modest stipend. Applicants must be available for residency between June 16–July 12, 2020. Previous applicants may reapply. There is no limit on the number of projects an artist may apply with. We do accept applications from international artists.

Projects may be anywhere along their development path: from an idea without anything on paper yet, to a complete draft of a text. Whether you are a writer simply needing a room in which to write or an ensemble wanting intensive rehearsal time, we encourage you to apply. Artists from other disciplines interested in creating theatre pieces are also very welcome. If your project is ready for a small audience, we are happy to provide that, but there is no requirement for any kind of culminating event. Past participants have held events that were open to the public, no final presentation at all, small closed readings, and everything in between.

This is a developmental residency. Projects looking for a full production are not eligible. If you are applying for an adaptation, please have the underlying rights already secured. We do not accept scripts along with application forms. If a proposed project makes it to the second round, we will then request a work sample, which may include whatever is already written, if applicable.

To apply

Have a look at our frequently asked questions before writing your application.

We suggest you download and complete the application as a Word document and then cut/paste your answers into the application form.

HB Rehearsal Space Residency & Reading Series

web site

Deadline November 8, 2019

HB Rehearsal Space Residencies

HB Studio is dedicated to training and practice for the theater, and seeks to provide a commerce-free environment for the nurturing and growth of theater artists. In pursuit of this goal, HB offers six two-month Rehearsal Space Residencies each year for the development of creative projects. The HB Rehearsal Space Residency is an opportunity for practicing theater artists to collaborate on experimental projects, develop new work, and share workshop presentations among peers and colleagues, for constructive critical feedback and mutual growth. (Please note, the residency’s focus is on rehearsal and development, not production, and we are unlikely to select projects which are primarily intended to “showcase” work). The Rehearsal Space Residency is an open opportunity; you do not have to be affiliated with HB Studio to apply. However we do ask that our resident artists work with us to engage with our community of students and faculty while in residence at HB.

ELIGIBLE RESIDENCY PROJECTS MAY INCLUDE, BUT ARE NOT LIMITED TO, THE FOLLOWING:

  • Rehearsed workshops or readings of new plays
  • New/exploratory staging or adaptation of existing works
  • Devised or improvised work
  • Musical theater works and theater works incorporating music
  • Movement-based theater work


IF SELECTED FOR A RESIDENCY, YOU RECEIVE:

  • Free rehearsal space, up to 9 hours each week, for two months.
  • During the second month, free presentation space over four weekends (Saturday & Sunday evenings) in the First Floor Studio, which may be used for public presentations, rehearsals, or both.
  • Limited temporary storage during the second month of each residency.
  • An orientation to the space and technical equipment.
  • Announcements of public presentations via HB Studio’s weekly notice and social media postings.
  • An eventbrite.com page created by HB staff for taking ticket reservations.

  • Providing your own technicians to design and run the show, if using tech elements.
  • Providing your own costume, props or set pieces, as needed. Limited props and set pieces are available for use in the First Floor Studio. (Ideal projects will be those that cultivate a “no budget” aesthetic – self-produced, bare bones, etc.)
  • Creating your own publicity materials and promoting your presentations.
  • Gathering and sharing feedback on your work-in-progress from colleagues and audience is encouraged.
  • Completing a survey for HB about your experience at the end of the project period.
  • Note: The format of our residency program does not allow for AEA members to participate under the Showcase Code as the Code now requires performance dates during the week as well as weekends. Please contact the Actors Equity Association for any exceptions.

HB Playwrights Reading Series

Each year, HB Studio produces one week of staged readings of new full-length plays. Six plays each receive one evening for a staged reading in the HB Playwrights Theatre, followed by a talk-back with the audience. The goal is to nurture the development of new plays, and provide a crucial step in the life of a new play that may not yet be ready for full production or performance. It is an opportunity for playwrights to see their work on its feet, collaborate with actors and directors, and share the work among peers and colleagues for feedback, mutual growth, and dialogue. This is an open opportunity; you do not have to be affiliated with HB Studio to apply. All original full-length plays are eligible, with preference given to works that have not received previous opportunities for readings or performance.

IF SELECTED FOR THE READING SERIES, HB STUDIO WILL PROVIDE:

  • Two days of free rehearsal space: a table read the day prior to your reading, and a rehearsal in the theater the day of your reading.
  • An AEA Staged Readings Agreement.
  • Technical and Production support.
  • Marketing, promotion, and ticketing.
  • If needed, help with finding actors, director, and moderator for the talk-back.

  • Creating your own mini-production company: You will be responsible for finding a director and casting your own play. (We’re here to help if needed.)
  • Following the AEA Staged Readings Guidelines
  • Keeping presentations as technically simple as possible: no props, no interior sound cues, no interior light cues.
  • Providing pre- and post-show music
  • Participating in a brief (10 min) talkback after the presentation of your play, and finding a moderator for the talk back.
  • Writing a logline for the play for HB to use in promo and marketing.

Ensemble Playwrights Lab Residency Season 7

web site

Deadline: August 19, 2019

The Ensemble Playwright Lab (EPL) is a residency program in which the playwright engages with Letter of Marque's (LOM) ensemble to create, develop, or reimagine a piece of work; which will be presented to the public at the end of the residency.

There will be two residencies: Fall & Winter. Two playwrights, one for each residency, will be selected to work with our ensemble once a week, for a total of 21 hours of collaboration and discovery.

And the best part? The EPL is FREE to the playwrights!

Each residency is uniquely tailored to provide playwrights with the opportunity to collaborate closely with LOM’s artistic directors and professional multi-disciplinary ensemble.

This experimental process of creation and development is designed to welcome the playwright into the rehearsal room through active participation in devised and improvisational explorations.
​​

The goals and outcomes of each residency are mutually determined by both LOM and the playwright.

Playwrights are chosen using an anonymous submission process. Each entrant is asked to create an alias so as to mask their identity. Entrants are also required to omit all mentions of names of previous collaborators and the titles of their previous work. The anonymized submissions are then read by members of the LoM ensemble. Finalists are scheduled for interviews with LoM Co-Artistic Directors, Nolan Kennedy and Scarlet Maressa Rivera which will determine the two chose participants in this year’s Ensemble Playwright Lab (EPL).

There will be two residencies: Fall & Winter. Two playwrights, one for each residency, will be selected to work with an ensemble of actors, musicians, dancers, directors, and designers once a week, for a total of 21 hours of collaboration and discovery in the rehearsal room, a 3 hour Tech/Dress rehearsal, and a single public showing followed by a facilitated talkback between the audience, playwright, and cast.

This season, LOM will be exploring the theme of luck.

NOTE: This is an anonymous submission process! Do not mention your real name, the names of companies or artists you've worked with, or titles of plays you've written in your submission. Doing so will get you disqualified! 

If you have any questions, please email: lomsubmissions@gmail.com to contact a non-adjudicating member of the team.

The EPL is open to playwrights...
-ages 18 and up
-living in the greater NYC area
-able to attend ALL meetings, rehearsals, showings, and wrap sessions in either the Fall or Winter sections (see dates below)

Mellon Foundation National Playwright Residency Program: 2020 Round

web site

The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, in collaboration with HowlRound Theatre Commons at Emerson College, established the National Playwright Residency Program (NPRP) in 2013.  The program provides three years of salary, benefits, and a flexible research and development fund for a diverse group of American playwrights at selected theaters around the country.  More than a standard residency, we conceived this initiative as an intervention into the traditional relationships between artists and institutions, as a way of reimagining what institutions might look like when an artist’s voice is at their cores.  NPRP has four primary goals:


  • Advance the state of playwrights in the American theater by providing them with space, time, and resources, and greater access to the institutions in which they work;
  • Influence the working environment of theaters by embedding playwrights in them;
  • Generate public value through the interaction of playwrights with local artistic and civic communities;
  • Document and disseminate the findings to help benefit the field.

Residencies will be selected through an open application process.  Theaters and playwrights must apply jointly by submitting statements of intent from the playwright and artistic director; a scope of work; and other specified materials to demonstrate eligibility, potential to achieve the goals of the program, and desire to participate in a growing network to advance artist-centered practices in the theater field.

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program 2019

web site

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program offers two or four week residencies to emerging artists driven to explore ways in which their work can be applied to the community and how Lanesboro’s rural community can inform their work.

2002 artist resident Coral Lambert conducted a public cast iron event and outdoor sculpture exhibition, including work made through public sculpture workshops.

The Lanesboro Artist Residency Program, located in Lanesboro, MN (pop. 754), is supported by the Jerome Foundation and aims to provide an immersive, meaningful experience for emerging artists from Minnesota and the five boroughs of New York City. The program is unique in that it provides an entire rural community and its myriad assets as a catalytic vehicle for engagement and artistic experimentation, with staff working with each resident to create a fully-customized residency experience.

Lanesboro Arts’ goal is to be flexible and accommodating to artists, allowing them access to local resources needed for conceptualizing and realizing their place-based work. Lanesboro Arts recognizes “place-based work” as work that is specifically inspired by and designed for the place in which the work takes place; it can be a new project, or an interpretation of the artist’s current work tailored to engage the community of Lanesboro. The residency program was designed to align with and amplify Lanesboro Arts’ vision for communities–especially rural communities–to embrace artists as economic drivers, culture bearers, community builders, and problem solvers.

TO APPLY

The application deadline for the 2020 Lanesboro Artist Residency Program is 12 p.m. (noon) CST on Wednesday, July 31, 2019. 

Jury review will take place in August and applicants will be notified by September 13, 2019 at the latest as to the status of their application. A phone interview process with finalists will take place in late September and selected artist residents and runners-up will be notified by September 30, 2019.

Artists must be legal residents of Minnesota or one of the five boroughs of New York City to be eligible to apply. To be considered, eligible artists must submit their application through the online webform on Lanesboro Arts website. Complete program details are below. Please contact Adam Wiltgen at 507-467-2446 or adam@lanesboroarts.org with any questions.

ABOUT LANESBORO ARTS
Lanesboro Arts is a non-profit, multidisciplinary arts organization working to weave the arts into the social and municipal fabric of Lanesboro, MN. Lanesboro Arts works closely with local government and cross-sector partners to activate the people and places of Lanesboro, making Lanesboro a national model for revitalizing and sustaining a small town.

HUMAN TRANSFORMATION: The act of creating and elevating the belief and practice that exposure to an intentional environment that celebrates and reveals the truth of the Black cultural experience and aligns it with our shared humanity promotes the purpose of liberation from systematic oppression for all people.

The Sarah Isom Center for Women and Gender Studies and the Department of Theatre and Film at the University of Mississippi, in partnership with the Yoknapatawpha Arts Council, seek an emerging, unpublished woman playwright (transgender inclusive) for a 20 day summer residency in Oxford, Mississippi. Participation in the residency does not require the completion of a work but is designed to provide support to advance the creation, production, and presentation of theatrical works by women writers. Our goal is to create an immersive opportunity that provides experiences, connections, and exposure for both the artist and the community to the creative process. We aim to create support for female voices in theatre and aid in the development or creation of new work that may be a play, monologue, devised performance or experimental theatrical work.

The Resident’s work need not reflect, be based on, or cover topics related to the South. However, the selected artist will be encouraged to utilize the resources of the Oxford community in their creative process and to foster engagement that will help build support for this residency and women playwrights.

After completion of the residency in Oxford, we expect the artist to partner (off-site) with students, faculty and community members through the following academic year. These local contributors will offer dramaturgical support in preparation for a production/presentation of the Resident’s work, in Oxford, the following summer or fall. A stipend, travel and housing will be provided for the Resident’s return to Oxford for the presentation of the work.
