Educator Residencies

Educators with their own art or writing practice are invited to apply for summer retreat opportunities.

Writers Retreat for Educators

Educator–writers of students who participated in the 2024 Scholastic Art & Writing Awards are invited to apply to the Writers Retreat for Educators, in collaboration with the Kenyon Review. Twelve selected educator-writers will join other participants for an online, six-day summer workshop series to hone their writing and teaching practices. Made possible by the Dr. Ernest B. Fleishman Educators’ Fund, the Maurice R. Robinson Fund, and Dav and Sayuri Pilkey, each selected educator will also be provided with a $200 stipend. Applications open in February—check our blog for more information.
