Georgia on your mind?

February 18, 2009

Emma Lunbeck, the Writing Program Director for Edgewood Arts, a
non-profit organization located in Savannah, GA

We offer a summer residency program for young writers and we want to let students across the country know about this unique opportunity. Our program invites two writers to live in the Edgewood house, a spacious home across from one of Savannah’s famous parks. Together with our program directors, these writers hold weekly group critiques, supporting and inspiring one another.

We also ask our Residents to participate as teachers in our Storyboard
program, an arts education initiative aimed at Savannah middle school
students. Edgewood Arts provides teacher training and tested curricula, so no teaching experience is necessary. The goal of our organization is to encourage young writers to involve themselves in their communities. Our Residents become part of the Edgewood collective and they also hone their craft by teaching it to the next generation.

Our Summer Session runs from May 8th to August 21st. We welcome
applications in poetry, fiction, screenwriting, playwriting, and creative
nonfiction. Our application deadline is March 15th, 2009.
More information and application materials are available on our website at www.edgewoodarts.org.

Please forward this email to your students and let them know about this exciting opportunity!
