The ArtsEdge Residency project at the University of Pennsylvania, which is designed to encourage and support the careers of emerging artists and writers, is now taking applications for its second year. Residencies last for one year and include a dedicated studio for each writer/artist, living space, and close affiliation with the writing and artistic communities at Penn. During the course of their residencies, writers and artists will develop at least one collaborative project with the Writers House or Fine Arts Department. Qualified applicants may also be considered to teach one course at Penn in the spring semester. Two residencies are available–one for a visual artist and one for a writer. The residences are not intended for current undergraduates. No affiliation with Penn is necessary. For more info and application visit writing.upenn.edu.
