Short and long-term residency opportunities are available to writers of all genres who need time to focus on their craft. A community service component is integral to the residency program.

Located on nearly 40 acres of meadows, orchards, and woodlands, Write On Door County provides a peaceful retreat for writers, allowing them time to focus on their craft. Nestled between the villages of Egg Harbor and Fish Creek, it is just a short drive to stores, restaurants, and entertainment. The shoreline of Green Bay is just down the hill and Lake Michigan is a 15 minute drive away.

Community service is integral to the residency program. Residents are asked to teach a class, visit a school or senior center, or otherwise engage with the community while they are here.

Accommodations can be made for writers who need to travel with family.
