Autumn at Storyknife and Applications Open


Only one month of residencies remains for the 2021 Storyknife Writers Retreat season. One more month this year for women writers to hunker down in their cabins, watch autumn winds ripple the dry grass in the meadow, and write their hearts out. One more month this year for them to gather in Eva’s House to talk over amazing dinners prepared by Maura, compare notes on the work they completed for the day, perhaps sit around the living room and enjoy tea and each other’s company. One more month this year for women to devote themselves to their writing dreams and aspirations.

Thank goodness for 2022! Women writers have until September 30th, midnight Alaska time, to submit their application to be one of the women writers in residence next year. It has been so amazing to watch this year’s writers finish their book proposals, or write 5,000 words a day, or put the finishing touches on their poetry collections. It is not an exaggeration to tell you that since June 1st, Storyknife has been fairly humming with creative energy. That enthusiasm and inspiration is contagious!

If you are one of the many individuals who has donated to support Storyknife, you made this happen. Your generosity has directly supported women writers having the time and space to devote to their writing. Thank you. Your gift has blossomed this summer and will grow for many more years.

take care and stay safe,
