The mission of The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH) is to provide uninterrupted residency time for writers of all genres, including culinary, composers and artists to work; and to interact with the wider community to stimulate new thinking and energize creative expression.
Residencies
The Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow is a unique residency program for writers, artists, composers, architects, and chefs in the historic arts village of Eureka Springs, Arkansas. Nestled on a beautiful bend in the road known as Dairy Hollow, the Colony hosts more than 50 established and emerging writers a year for residencies that vary in length from one week to three months.
The Colony is now open year-round, and winter is a very quiet, serene time to visit. For writers who join us to craft and compose their work, Colony time is magical. Residents apply and are juried into the Colony for either subsidized general residency or a Fellowship-funded stay. In the privacy of separate, individual writing suites fully equipped with bedroom, writing area, wifi, a/c, and private bath, and with all meals provided, our residents write, and write, and write!
While work time at the Colony is fiercely protected, Monday through Friday evenings enjoy Kitchen Magician Jana's wonderful cooking. When other writers are in residency with you, share ideas, inspiration and support over a home-cooked meal. Take advantage of a stocked kitchen for other meals.
And the rest of the time? As one writer noted, "With every need met, all we do is write. Need a break? It's gorgeous here - take a hike or walk 5 minutes to town where there's always something fun going on." (Read more alumni testimonials)
This gift of uninterrupted work time in a supportive environment, combined with Eureka Spring's breathtaking natural surroundings and vibrant community of writers, musicians, and artists, has beckoned residents from across the country and around the globe since the Colony opened in 1999. Now in our second decade, we look forward to welcoming our alumni home and to introducing new writers to the magic of the Writers' Colony at Dairy Hollow.
