Surdna Foundation Arts Program Announces Request for Proposals
for Creative Writing Residencies for Teens

Deadline: Open

The Surdna Foundation's ( http://www.surdna.org/ ) Arts program,
which funds organizations that provide intensive art-making
experiences for teens, is launching a new initiative in support
of young creative writers.

The foundation is seeking proposals from writers'/artists'
colonies -- artists' communities that serve creative writers --
that have experience with or an interest in working with young
people to develop a summer creative writing retreat program for
teens. Participants will reside in the artists' communities and
will be mentored by professional writers of national/inter-
national stature. All eligible artists' communities that have
historically welcomed creative writers are encouraged to apply.

The foundation hopes to provide young writers with opportunities
for new resources, creation, solitude, and reflection similar to
that offered to adult professionals who attend writers' colonies.
Proposed projects must allow for at least twenty teens to be
served per year, and all participants must be in residence for
no less than two weeks.

Only organizations with 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status and in opera-
tion as an artists' colony serving creative writers for a minimum
of five years may apply.

Grant size will depend on the scope of the project and the size
of the organization. Applicants may apply for up to three years.
