Applications for Hemingway-Pfeiffer Writer-in-Residence are accepted


PIGGOTT – Applications for the 2022 Writer-in-Residence Program at the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Education Center in Piggott are now open. The residence is from June 1 to 30 and includes accommodation in a loft in the Piggott town center square above the City Market cafe.

The Writer-in-Residence will also have the opportunity to work in the studio where author Ernest Hemingway worked on his Pulitzer Prize-winning book. A farewell to arms during an extended stay with his wife’s family in 1928. The residence includes an allowance of $ 1,000 to help cover food and transportation.

If public health conditions permit, the writer-in-residence should serve as a mentor for a week-long retreat for writers at the educational center. This retreat will be open to 8 to 10 writers. The recipient may be invited to do one or two readings of their own work. The remainder of the month will be free for the writer-in-residence to work on their own work in a safe and socially remote environment.

Applicants with a Master of Arts or Master of Fine Arts degree in a relevant field are preferred. Send a cover letter, a CV and a sample of approximately 20 pages (of any kind) to Dr Adam Long at [email protected] before February 28. Incomplete applications cannot be accepted. Due to the high volume of applications expected, confirmation of receipt of applications cannot be guaranteed.

Questions about the program can be directed to Long. For more information on the museum or accommodation (The Inn at Piggott), visit

The Writer-in-Residence program is made possible through subscription sponsorship by Piggott State Bank.

The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Education Center, an Arkansas State University heritage site, contributes to the understanding of regional, national, and world history of the 1920s and 1930s by focusing on the Pfeiffer family de Piggott and their son-in-law and regular guest Ernest Hemingway. This includes leveraging Hemingway’s influence as a renowned American author to spark interest in literature and the arts and promote excellence in both.
