The residency was established to provide space, time, and an inspiring landscape for writers to work, and a chance to unplug and connect with other writers. There is no internet or cellphones at the residency; rooms are single occupancy with private baths, food will be provided.

There is space for six writers, half the spaces are reserved for regional authors. Writers of any genre may apply. Quality of written submissions is the primary consideration during the application review process.

The residency was provided by the estate of Anne LaBastille, who wrote books like Woodswoman and Beyond Black Bear Lake from her cabin on Twitchell Lake. During the residency, the writers can paddle to the site of her property and explore the lake with locals.
