The Lemon Tree HOuse RESIDENCY for Writers and Artists
OCTOBER 1 - 15, 2016
OPEN CALL FOR APPLICATIONS: DEADLINE MARCH 30,2016
THE LEMON TREE HOUSE IS PROUD To WELCOME ARTISTs As well as Writers
IN OUR FALL 2016 PROGRAM!
The Lemon Tree House fosters creative growth by providing time, dialogue and space in beautiful Tuscany. Writers and artists have the best of both worlds- the freedom to work in peace during the day, with the option to meet up with the group for cocktails, dinner and craft talks with the featured Artists and Writers-in-Residence in the evening. Located in a tranquil hamlet in the Cetona foothills, residents have access to the full grounds, as well as a workspace in their private rooms.
The Lemon Tree House encourages a productive experience and is open to those emerging or established in their careers. Buy time to work on, launch or finish an inspiring project, dream, connect with others, seek and find editorial, structural or technical advice, enjoy the craft talks. Past guest lecturers includes Giller-nominated Sarah Selecky, Italian author Pietro Grossi, New York Times best seller Ibi Kaslik, prize-winning writer Rosa Rankin-Gee of "The Last Kings Of Sark" and Lemon Tree House's own Erinn Beth Langille.
The Fall 2016 roster of In-Residence artists and writers will be announced soon, reflecting the expanded disciplines we support. How much you engage in the majestic and culturally rich environment of Tuscany is really up to you, but we are happy to help!

Whether you need that quiet time to complete a project, or hope to launch a new idea, The Lemon Tree House Residency is a perfect way to explore the creative process. Two full weeks devoted to writing and art: one-on-one sessions with in-house instructors & international authors, editorial advice from our writers and artists-in-residence, nightly cocktail hour & dinner with fellow writers & artists or just a quiet, beautiful space to get away and focus. At The Lemon Tree House Residency there is plenty of solitude in which to write, with the benefits of like-minded company in what we know can sometimes be a rather isolating artistic pursuit.
