Mesa Refuge Fall 2022 Residency

Mesa Refuge welcomes a diverse group of writers, filmmakers, audio journalists and other creatives—both emerging and established—who are defining and/or offering solutions to the pressing issues of our time. Particularly, it is our priority to support writers focusing on “ideas at the edge” in the areas of environment, social justice and economic equity. We invite you to apply for our residency. Our spring and fall residencies are two-weeks long and there is no residency fee (though you are responsible for your own travel, transportation and food).

Additional Eligibility Information

We have two application deadlines during the year: June 1 (for the fall) and December 1 (for the following spring). We are a small nonprofit and our application fee of $50 helps underwrite the cost of application review. As an organization committed to equity, however, we do not want the application fee to be a barrier to apply. To request a fee waiver, please email us directly at info@mesarefuge.org. We contact all applicants 8-10 weeks after the application deadline.
