KNOXVILLE, TN — The Sundress Academy for the Artsis accepting applications for short-term writers residencies during the summer residency period for its Writers Coop. These residencies are designed to give writers and artists time and space to complete their creative projects in a quiet and productive environment.

Open weeks for the spring dates include May 27 through Aug. 11. Residency weeks run from Monday-Sunday.

SAFTA is located on a working farm on a 45-acre wooded plot in a Tennessee "holler" perfect for hiking, camping, and nature walks. Located less than a half-hour from downtown Knoxville, an exciting and creative city of 200,00 in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains, SAFTA is an ideal location for those looking for a rural get-away with access to urban amenities.

TheSAFTA Writers Coopis a 10x10' dry cabin approximately one-fourth of a mile from the SAFTA farmhouse. This tiny house is furnished with a twin bed, a desk, a wood-burning stove, a deck that looks over the pasture and pond, as well as a personal detached outhouse. While the cabin has neither electricity nor running water, residents will have full access to the amenities at farmhouse — which also has Wifi, printing capabilities and a fully stocked kitchen — as well as solitude from other residents to write in the rolling hills of East Tennessee.

Each residency costs $150/week and includes your own private dry cabin as well as 24-hour access to the farmhouse amenities.

All other applications for this residency opportunity are free and rolling. Apply today to get preferred dates.
