My name is Meg Brown and I’m the Manager of Children’s Programming at Thurber house in Columbus, Ohio. Thurber House has a Children’s Writer in Residence program for middle-grade authors each year and we just released the guidelines and application form for the 2013 residency.
This unique residency has been in existence since 2001, offering an opportunity for authors to have time to work on their writing in a fully furnished apartment, in the historic boyhood home of author and humorist, James Thurber. The residency is available in the summer (any four weeks between June and August) so that the resident can also participate in the community by teaching at our Summer Writing Camp. Some of the recent winners are Lisa Yee (2007), Alan Silberberg (08), Hope Anita Smith (09), Keith McGowan (10), Alan Gratz (11), Donna Gephart (12).
The guidelines and application are available on our website. The deadline for submissions for the 2013 residency is Friday, November 2, 2012.
