2018 Keeper's House Writer Residency is a six day, five night residency (June 23 - 30) dedicated to your art. Residents are provided with a renovated apartment on the second floor of the Burnt Coat Harbor Light Station, six miles off the north coast of Maine.
Residents will host a one-hour presentation about the art they make.
