Submit an application by March 1 to be considered for our season. We evaluate submitted applications shortly after the deadline. If you’ve missed the deadline and would still like to apply, ask to be added to our waitlist.

We accept written applications by email to apply@northmountainresidency.org. If you prefer a verbal, conversational approach to applying, we will arrange an application for you via phone or Skype. Let us know in advance so we can schedule a conversation.

Please read about our residency program for details about schedules, eligibility, fees, and application/selection process. North Mountain has limited space, and not all applicants can be accepted.

We acknowledge the inequity that exists in the arts and creative professions. We try our best to extend our resources to people from communities that have been historically oppressed or marginalized. Visit our values page for more details.
