A place where every detail is chosen
to let each woman writer in residence
know that she and her work are valued,
cherished, and nurtured.
Starting in 2020 (now postponed to 2021 in light of the COVID-19 pandemic), Storyknife will offer writing residencies for two and four week periods. Each accepted woman writer will have her own cabin where she can write and reflect, sleep and dream. Each day she will fix her own breakfast from ingredients in the main house’s kitchen. Our chef manager will bring a nutritious lunch to each cabin, and in the evening, the writers will gather at the main house for a shared meal. Each woman will establish her own writing schedule and projects, and together, they will be able to form the kind of supportive writing friendships that last a lifetime.
In 2019, we built the six cabins and main house that will comprise Storyknife. Infinite care has been taken on creating a residency that is welcoming, supportive, and unique in its embrace of the landscape and culture of Alaska.
Residencies will begin on the first of each month, April through October, and end on the twenty-eight. Two week residencies begin on the first and end on the fourteenth. Residency fellows’ food and board is taken care of during their stay, but travel to and from Homer, Alaska, is their responsibility.
The main house and one of the cabins is completely ADA accessible. Please contact us if you have any questions about accessibility or accommodations.
