Two candidates will be selected to serve independently as resident artists, each for a term of one day. Each resident artist will receive a $350 stipend and will be furnished with a festival credential that identifies them as festival personnel. Travel expenses will be the sole responsibility of the artist. No application fee is required.
Each resident artist will maintain possession of the physical work produced during the residency. Greensboro Bound maintains the right to obtain digital reproductions of work created during the residency and use that work in advertorial or informational representations of the festival.
The application process is now open and will remain open until 11:59 PM, 5 April 2019. Applications will be reviewed by the following committee: Devon McKnight, from Center for Visual Arts; Gui Portel, from Elsewhere; and Andrew Saulters, from Greensboro Bound. Notification will be made by email in late April 2019.
Greensboro Bound brings outstanding writers of poetry, fiction, non-fiction, young-adult and children’s books to Greensboro’s community and schools. It encourages committed readers to further engage with literature and sparks new enthusiasm for reading among beginners. Through multiple year-round programs and a three-day festival in May, Greensboro Bound promotes reading, public discussion of civic issues, and free expression.
Greensboro Bound celebrates diverse voices from around the world, honors North Carolina’s long and varied literary traditions, and welcomes an inclusive community of readers from Greensboro and beyond. Greensboro Bound does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, disability, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, national origin, or gender identity. The festival welcomes resident artist applicants of all backgrounds and experiences.
