DEADLINE: The Mesa Refuge

Event Date: 
November 1, 2024

Journalists, essayists, economists, naturalists, screenwriters, authors of memoirs, and other writers who need solitude essential to creative work may apply for a two-week session at The Mesa Refuge, a residency program for environmental writers, in Point Reyes Station, CA.

Since 1997, the Mesa Refuge has supported more than 1,000 writers and other creatives, mostly focused on “ideas at the edge” of nature, social justice and economic equity. A Mesa Refuge residency is an opportunity to develop ideas and present them to the public. We encourage applicants from diverse backgrounds and disciplines.

The Mesa Refuge offers the true gifts of time, space and support. No daily fees are charged for residents.

We welcome both experienced and emerging writers and activists who are addressing pressing issues of our time including (but not limited to): nature, environment and climate crisis; economic, racial and gender equity; social justice and restorative justice; immigration; health care access; housing; and more.

Travel and transportation to Point Reyes is the resident’s responsibility as well as food. There is a $50 application fee (fee waiver can be requested).

Deadline: Nov 1, 2024 for all 2025 residencies
