The LitSpace St. Petersburg Writers’ Residency invites applications from fiction writers, poets, playwrights, essayists, and memoirists. We hope to build a legacy as a residency that provides support for adventurous writers and fresh voices. We encourage applications from writers whose work is challenging and daring, as well as from underrepresented backgrounds.
Our goal is to foster writers from around the country and the world, enrich St. Petersburg’s literary culture, and connect it to the broader literary world. Therefore, we invite applications from anywhere in the world. However, we can only read applications and writing samples in English, and provide the same financial support regardless of a fellows’ travel expenses.
