The nonprofit Pat Conroy Literary Center offers a Writer’s Residency twice annually—typically in early March and early November, conjoined to our March Forth program and our Pat Conroy Literary Festival respectively. The residency is available to writers of all genres, published or unpublished, unless otherwise noted in the specific call for applications. Located on a salt marsh on St. Helena Island, approximately 15 minutes from historic downtown Beaufort, the residency cottage provides an inspirational, creative space in the heart of Pat Conroy’s beloved lowcountry for a stay of eight days.
The call for applications will be posted 8 to 10 weeks prior to the residency period—on the Conroy Center’s Facebook page, email newsletter, and website. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel of Conroy Center advisors. Applications are not accepted outside of these posted review periods.
