SELF GUIDED RESIDENCIES DESIGNED FOR THOSE WHO WANT TO TAKE TIME OUT TO FOCUS ON A SPECIFIC WRITING PROJECT.
A residency offers accommodation and all meals in The Hall, or Grass House at Springfield Farm for $1,050 - $2,100 (including GST) per week. Springfield alum are eligible to apply for a Springfielder Writing Residency.
Each proposal is considered in relation to all other applications for each residency, taking into account the stage and artistic merit of your project, together with your statement regarding the benefit of a residency to your project. Consideration is also given to the diversity of the group at each residency.
All residents have their own private bedroom. Springfield has a variety of bedrooms, varying in size. In The Hall two of the three upstairs bedrooms share a bathroom, a spacious third room has an ensuite, and the fourth room downstairs has its own ensuite and sitting room. The Grass House has 2 bedrooms, a shared bathroom and shared kitchenette and living room.
Residents have the freedom to self-cater for breakfast and lunch. We'll arrange a roster to encourage residents to enjoy cooking together for the evening meals, which are shared, family style, in The Hall. The meals are wholesome, mostly vegetarian and organic, and many of the vegetables are sourced from our own gardens. You are welcome to harvest ingredients and to collect your eggs.
