Deadline: January 15, 2016.
The residency is designed for poets who have at least one full length book
(either published or under contract) and no more than two books.
Chapbooks are not full length books.
Eligible poets are encouraged to apply.
The SPiR receives housing, a travel reimbursement,
and an honorarium of $3,000 thanks to the generosity of The Department of English,
The College of Liberal Arts, and the Division of Outreach and Continuing Education.
In addition, the SPiR will receive ten broadsides of his or her work designed by Jan Murray.
The Summer Poet in Residence (SPiR) is at the University of Mississippi.
The residency supports a poet who desires a quiet,
beautiful location in which to further his or her work,
and it lasts four weeks, from June 15 to July 15, 2016.
