Inspiring People to Write & Share Their Stories

heading-bk

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.

Applications are now being accepted for writers' and literary arts administrators' residencies in 2025. Applications from both emerging and established writers in any genre are welcome, as are applications from literary arts administrators.

Due to the fact that the Artistic Director will be unavailable for questions in late March, the application deadline has been extended to Monday, April 8. 

If you would like to apply, please click here.

Our inspiring programs are held in person at our Writing Center, at various locations in the community, and online. Unless otherwise noted, programs take place at the center.

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.
