And speaking of the Commonwealth...here's an amazing opportunity for published writers based in Scotland: the Robert Louis Stevenson Fellowship. This fellowship provides, for up to three writers per year, "accommodation for a maximum of six weeks in 2010 in a self-catering studio apartment at the Hotel Chevillon International Arts Centre at Grez-sur-Loing, on the edge of the Forest of Fontainebleau in France, where Robert Louis Stevenson met his future wife, Fanny Osbourne, in 1876. Travel and accommodation is paid for and there is a grant of £300 per week to cover living expenses." No application fee. Deadline: April 9, 2010.
Applications for the Writers' Dojo Writer-in-Residency program at Sitka Center (Ore.) are similarly due by April 9, 2010. There is no application fee. Three residency slots are available from October 2010-January 2011. For details about the residency and its community service component, plus the online application, click here.
