The Poet Cottage Annual Residency – Refuge for Writers


A Writer’s Refuge in Paradise

The hardest thing for writers to find is often the most vital – extended time, a sense of calm, and a peaceful place to do their work.

To provide a refuge for writers who might not otherwise be able to afford a writing retreat of their own, Hollowdeck Press LLC sponsors the annual Poet Cottage Writer’s Residency, offering a 10-day stay at Poet Cottage, a 450 Sq Ft cottage on the small island of St. John in the US Virgin Islands, an award worth over $2000.

Poet Cottage is a private, relaxed, well-appointed studio on a hill overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the Virgin Islands National Park. The cottage is a brand new one-story masonry home with endless views, wifi, air conditioning, and a washer/dryer.

The Residency is open to Poets, Fiction writers and Narrative Non-Fiction / Memoir writers, all levels of experience welcome. Applications are accepted between July 1-15th each year and the Residency runs November 1-10th each year.

The cottage is also available to rent year round for any writer who would needs a private place to focus on their work. To see more information on renting the cottage or applying to the Residency, please visit www.poetcottage.com
