Edith Wharton Writers-in-Residence Program


A two to three week residency in February or March for three women writers at The Mount, Edith Wharton’s Home. Each resident will receive a work space at The Mount, a $1000 food and travel stipend, and lodging for the duration of their residency. Residents must provide their own transportation. The principal responsibility of each resident is to spend time further developing her creative work. In addition, residents are required to produce a short piece of public writing (essay, article, blog post, etc.) about their time at The Mount and offer a public reading of their work at The Mount.


Lenox, Massachusetts: United States

Residents will complete their residency at The Mount in Lenox, MA. Edith Wharton designed The Mount, a Georgian revival mansion, on a wooded parcel on the shores of Laurel Lake and lived there from 1902-1911. It was at The Mount, which she called her “first true home,” that Wharton came into her own as a writer and produced some of her most iconic works. Today, The Mount is a historic house museum and cultural center that celebrates the artistic, literary, and humanitarian legacy of Edith Wharton.
