Mineral School is an artists residency located in a former 1947 elementary school near Mt. Rainier, in Mineral, Washington. During summer 2018, we're offering three two-week residency periods to 8 writers of poetry and prose and 4 visual artists, providing accepted applicants with space and time to create new work without the interruptions of normal life and with the bonus of healthy meals prepared by culinary volunteers using locally-grown organic food whenever possible. During September 2018, we'll offer a one-week residency to 4 writers who are parents of children under 18.
Each resident will live in an 800-square foot former classroom that offers peekaboo views of Mineral Lake and Mt. Rainier, and that will double as their writing studio, with desk and chair, lighting, bookcase, and lots of chalkboards. Visual artist residents will be offered space to work outside of their classrooms (unless they wish to work in their medium in the room where they sleep). The school building has bathrooms with showers. Residents are served all meals and snacks daily and have the opportunity to share work with the public. Mineral features a swimmable fishing lake and boat rentals, a bar, a bed and breakfast, a general store, churches, a post office, and more deer than people. It's 25 minutes by car to Mt. Rainier National Park.
Two-week residency periods for 2018:
June 17-July 1
July 15-July 29
August 19-September 2
One-week parents' residency
September 15-September 23
We're pleased to offer five funded two-week residencies in 2018.
Three June Dodge Writing Fellows attend for free and receive travel assistance from any point in or between Portland, OR, and Seattle, WA, in addition to room and board, visits by presenting authors, and opportunities to share work publicly. These fellowships are open to writers from the Pacific Northwest (AK, ID, MT, OR, WA) and Western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon).
The Erin Donovan Writing Fellowship (August 2018) is open to an emerging woman writer of poetry or prose living in Massachusetts, New York, Oregon, or Washington, who is at least 40 years old, and whose writing expresses both wit and compassion. This fellowship covers the residency fee (room and board, guest presenters, options to present) for August 2018 and includes a travel reimbursement of up to $175 (for OR/WA residents) or up to $400 (for MA/NY residents). This fellowship is funded by family and friends of Erin Donovan, an Oregon fiction writer, teacher, and outdoors woman who passed away in 2015.
The Mona Lisa Roberts Visual Arts Fellowship is open to a visual artist (graphic novelist/comics artist, painter, photographer, fabric artist, paper artist, etc.) who self-identifies as LGBTQ and lives in the Pacific Northwest (Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington) or the provinces of western Canada (British Columbia, Alberta, Yukon). This fellowship funds a two-week residency any month and transit from Seattle, Portland, or points between. Depending on the medium and artist's preference, they can work in the studio room where they sleep, spread out in the gym, or improvise outdoors.
ONE-WEEK PARENT FELLOWSHIP OPTIONS
