The Amy Clampitt Residency Program

The Amy Clampitt Fund seeks to “benefit poetry and the literary arts by converting Amy Clampitt’s prior residence . . . into a facility which would provide for a place to foster the study and promotion of poetry and/or a poet in residence” through six to twelve month residencies at the Amy Clampitt House near Lenox, Massachusetts. It is expected that the resident fellow will commit to residing in the house full-time and focusing exclusively on his/her creative work except for occasional absences. The resident fellow will be asked to give a reading locally of his/her work. The Amy Clampitt House is a charming, fully furnished, 3-bedroom, 2-story house in the Cape style.
