I was not accepted to the Anne LaBastille Memorial Writers Residency at the Adirondack Center for Writing. I guess they meant that the new residents would be notified by August 23, but not the people rejected. It wasn’t clear on the website. I only found out for certain because I signed up for the Center’s e-mail list, and got an announcement recently.
Here’s what else I wrote about this.
So in July, I sent in an application to the Anne LaBastille Memorial Writers Residency. According to the website, announcements were to be made August 23rd. That date has come and gone, and I haven’t heard a word nor seen anything on the site. Obviously, this is frustrating. Getting that one fiction spot for writers who aren’t from the area is a long shot, but still.
At this point, I’m guessing that I didn’t get it or I would have heard. I mean, the residency begins in 2 or 3 weeks. Still, it’d be nice to have an answer, even if it’s a rejection.
