Shuffle Collective’s Literary Arts Residency is a six month program that brings together writers from all literary backgrounds to build community, develop professionally and hone their craft.
The 2020 Residency applications are closed, but there are lots of ways to get involved with the Literary Arts Collective. Learn more!
The goal of this residency is to let writers carve out time and space for their craft while providing them with tools, resources and skills to develop professionally. In collaboration with each other, residents help build and cultivate peer support & community while gaining hands-on experience in the areas of education, performance, event production and community engagement. Residents meet regularly to critique each other's work, share skills and partake in workshops with guest facilitators. They also get opportunities to participate in Shuffle’s monthly pop-up literary events as well as in the final group showcase of their projects.
Our 2020 cohort represents an interdisciplinary mix of authors across fiction, creative nonfiction and poetry. They have been selected for their literary prowess, vision, and dedication to community building.
