Supporting creative work in a place Hemingway loved and lived
Unique in the intermountain West, this residency provides an allowance of time and space in an historic house and a spectacular natural landscape for writers to work.
The Hemingway Writer-in-Residence is a residency program based in Ketchum, Idaho, and managed by The Community Library, custodian of the historic and privately-operated Ernest and Mary Hemingway House and Preserve.
The residency program is by invitation only, as we are focused at this time on aligning the residency with the Library’s programs, major initiatives, and community partnerships.
Letters of inquiry may be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org, and submissions may include a CV and/or writing sample.
The Library fields a large number of inquiries. We thank you for understanding that we are not able to respond to all inquiries and that responses may be delayed. We typically are not able to respond to time-sensitive inquiries.
