The second annual DISQUIET Writing Residency in the Azores, sponsored by Dzanc Books and Fundação Luso-Americana, will be held from July 14-23 in Ponta Delgada, on the island of São Miguel.

Writers of poetry, fiction, and nonfiction will stay at a boutique hotel and write every morning in a seven-hectare botanical garden. Afternoons will include half-day excursions to explore the island, including hiking volcanoes, relaxing in geothermal pools, and days at the beach. Evenings will include readings and open mics, as well as informal gatherings to discuss works-in-progress. Tuition, including a private room and breakfast, is $1,350 for the “standard” room and $1485 for the “superior” room. To apply, submit up to 10 pages of poetry or prose and a refundable $150 tuition deposit. Admission is made on a rolling basis and space is extremely limited.
