Inspiring People to Write & Share Their Stories
Write On, Door County focuses on the importance of writing, reading, and connecting people through stories. Nestled on a beautiful and inspiring 59-acre campus in the middle of the Door County peninsula, you'll discover classes, programs, and special events year-round for writers of all ages and levels of experience.
The 2023 Dick Scuglik Memorial Residency and Scholarship is now accepting applications through March 1. The fellowship is offered to a poet or other writer with demonstrated ability and interest in ekphrastic writing. The residency will be held Sunday, June 11 - Sunday, June 18, 2023. The winner will be paired with Door County artist Rebecca Carlton. Each will create new work inspired by the other artist and will present the work at a public program during the residency week.
Our inspiring programs are held in person at our Writing Center, at various locations in the community, and online.
Each year, Write On, Door County brings a series of writing conferences and master classes to the Door County community and beyond.
Information on 2023 conferences, master classes, and writing intensives will be posted soon.
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 2024, the application period will be January 1 - April 1, 2024.
