Maison Baldwin Fellowship

DEADLINE:1 December 2020

The Maison Baldwin Writers-in-Residence Program invites emerging writers to stay in James Baldwin's beloved house in the medieval village of Saint-Paul de Vence, France.


This fellowship is open to emerging writers working in the spirit of James Baldwin. Eligible to apply are poets, playwrights, essayists and fiction writers with no more than one full-length published book, produced film, or professionally staged production (in other words: short films, staged readings, chapbooks and one-act plays don't count).


Writers in residence are offered a room in the village center to pursue their current creative project.

Breakfast and dinner every day is included in the fellowship, as is a USD $700 travel stipend.


To apply, send a cover letter, a brief bio and writing sample of ten pages after September 1, 2020 to with the subject line "2021 Residency Application." In your cover letter, please affirm your status as an emerging writer.
