Residency: VCCA, Amherst, VA

Residency: Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Amherst, Virginia

Deadline: September 15

Serenity. Light. Space. Privacy. The ability to work uninterrupted for hours, days, weeks in a quiet studio cradled in 400 acres of rolling Blue Ridge farmland. These are just a few of the reasons why more than 400 of the world’s foremost writers, composers, and visual artists come to VCCA each year. Every residency includes a comfortable, private bedroom, three meals a day, and a private studio.

Among our Fellows are recipients of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts, the American Academy in Rome, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation, as well as winners of National Book Awards, Pulitzer Prizes, and MacArthur genius awards. In the past 41 years, more than 4,000 writers, artists and composers have benefited from residencies at VCCA, making it, in the words of one of our Fellows, “one of the most important sources of art in the world.”

VCCA. Because creative space is a creative edge.
