Write On provides a place of solitude and reflection on 59 acres of woods, orchards, and meadows nestled between the water of Green Bay and Lake Michigan. Writers can work on a current project and find inspiration for the next without the distractions that hound them at home. Residencies range from one week to one month.

For residencies in 2025, the application period will be January 1 - April 1, 2024.
