Prospect Street Writers House

Prospect Street brings together writers regardless of genre and experience. What the Writers House will provide is peace and quiet. Because the population at Prospect Street seldom exceeds twelve writers, the residency format supports interpersonal give-and-take while providing the opportunity for critical appraisal from one’s peers. A writer’s greatest resource being other writers, the congenial atmosphere at Prospect Street is conducive to making lifelong friendships, as well as professional contacts.
The experience of a Prospect Street residency can open the gate to creativity, jumpstart a stalled project, renew lagging confidence, and restore the solitary writer’s sense of community. There’s nothing quite as rich as the conversation between smart people interested in the same thing. Informal readings and discussions led by visiting writers will take place after dinner. Bennington College’s evening literary programming will be available to the Writers House. And the College’s library can be used by Prospect Street attendees.
