The writers in residence will enjoy a unique opportunity to learn about the natural world in Central America’s Costa Rica while pursuing their creative endeavors. Whether writing in your personal journal or writing for publication, being submerged in the natural world unleashes your powerful creative energy. Now imagine that the this time in this space in the world is mentoring you. Paradise!


TheWriteRoom.Org/Residency:  takes place three times a year on two acres of densely forested land along the banks of  Rio Nimoyore  and is home to much wildlife; howling monkeys, horses, birds and plenty of critters. It is set up for five women writers at a time, from an applicant pool, approximately thirty writers each year are awarded residencies of one to four weeks. There are still pieces of pottery found representing some of the best era ceramics. Pottery is still made and sold in a nearby village using the same methods and designs as hundreds of years ago. Imagine yourself far away from your hectic, responsibility-laden life. Imagine that for once it’s all about you and your writing. Imagine yourself on a secluded farm in Costa Ricawith the inspiration and the time to really write. This Program is at no cost to the Residentee, however airfare is not included at this time.



are taught to selected Writers  from November through March annually. HOTEL ACCOMMODATION  is included on a beautiful country side residency near the beach of Tamarindo. Bringing one’s own iPads, Laptops, Notebooks and old school pen and note pad are highly suggested as this is also a tropical area often with heavy rains which, yes effects, electricity but also promotes the time to concentrate on their work.


Transportation to and from the ocean by car is provided but otherwise we live on the property in its natural state allowing each resident to find her own treks to the local small village or call for car and driver if that is her wish. Personal writing time is woven into the moments between just thinking! Join us for unforgettable days of solitude and camaraderie.
