Emerging Writer’s Residency (Madeline P. Plonsker)
Each spring, Lake Forest College, in conjunction with the & NOW Festival, sponsors emerging writers under forty years old—with no major book publication—to spend two months in residence at our campus in Chicago’s northern suburbs on the shore of Lake Michigan.
There are no formal teaching duties attached to the residency. Time is to be spent completing a manuscript, participating in the annual Lake Forest Literary Festival, and offering a series of public presentations.
The completed manuscript will be published (upon approval) by &NOW Books imprint, with distribution by Northwestern University Press.
The stipend is $10,000 with a housing suite and campus meals provided by the college.
