Writers, Artists, Musicians Residencies
Twisted Run Retreat supports the arts. The quiet atmosphere, comfortable living accommodations, and natural beauty nurture writers, artists, and musicians.
In 2018, the months of May, July, and August are dedicated to residencies for writers, artists, and musicians at an affordable rate. Throughout the year, small groups (no more than 4) are encouraged to apply for the residency.
RESIDENCIES ARE AVAILABLE YEAR ROUND DEPENDING ON AVAILABILITY.
The spacious cabin can house two people, providing a private room and bath for each. If you prefer, you can reserve the entire cabin, again at an affordable rate.
Visual artists are welcome to apply, but as of Winter 2018, I can only accept plein air artists. When I have the studios built, all artists will be welcome to apply.
Musicians are advised to reserve a full cabin. A recording space can be made available on request.
- Phone conversation
- List of publications, shows, grants, awards (if available)
- Two references familiar with your work
- Links to online work samples
Qualified applicants are accepted on a first-come, first served basis.
$275/week shared cabin (private room with bath).
$500/week for entire cabin.
All residencies require full payment two weeks before arrival. This payment is non-refundable unless Twisted Run Retreat cannot provide the agreed upon accommodations.
Residencies run from Saturday to Saturday.
As a writer, I know the value of working in a supportive space. Come to Twisted Run Retreat to nurture your project.

What Others Are Saying
“I got up early every morning, made coffee, and settled into a day’s work on the porch…I entered the proverbial zone…Lunch break. Walk trails. Then back at it until I hit my daily word count, which I did every day. Catch a little rest as late afternoon thunderstorms drummed the metal roof of my cabin…I fell into a rhythm at Twisted Run and knocked out the first third of a novel, the most productive stretch of writing I’ve ever had.”
“There is a quiet to Twisted Run, a sense that the rest of the world is several stops away. It was easy to be undisturbed….Southern Mississippi is all pine forest and sand, and the Twisted Run setting against Bluff Creek was lovely. A dock on the creek made a great place for changing locations and watching the occasional boater go by. I’d recommend this space for writers…”
