dickinson house writers residency belgium garden

In 2017, two writers (poets, prose writers, playwrights, translators all eligible) will be invited to Dickinson House as fellows for two weeks each. Our past fellows have had some amazing things to say about staying here (here are Aria Aber’s words, and here are Natashia Deón’s), as have residents like Erin Kate Ryan, who was here in October 2015. We are enjoying reading the work that has come in—especially the letters, which give us a sense of who applicants are and how well they’d fit here—and are looking forward to sharing the anonymized applications with our jury. Want to come write in Belgium for free for two weeks in 2017? Application details are here. Apply through Submittable here. Have independent means and want to make residencies/fellowships possible for other writers and artists? Information on fee-paying residencies is here.

No reading period this June

Dear readers and writers,

This year there will be no open reading period. I want to concentrate on the books MIEL has already put into the world, and on the planned anthology. If you are interested in supporting the press in the coming year, please consider a purchase in our shop. If you want to send work, the anthology is open for work until mid-July 2016.

You can use the discount code NOOPEN16 for a 50% discount on any books purchased in June.

Thanks and best wishes,

Éireann Lorsung

No June reading period this year

Four microseries chapbooks

As it says above, we’re going to sit this one out. No open reading period for the press in 2016. If you’re interested in MIEL publishing your work, you can send to our anthology on [ S O F T N E S S ] (reading until July 15, 2016), or watch for a call for work for 111O/10 in late summer. And you can always buy a book or a subscription in the shop to show your support. Between June 1 and June 30, you can use the code NOOPEN16 at checkout for 50% off any chapbook (does not apply to subscriptions or 111O).
