Authors who write about environmental concerns and the beauties of the natural world will want to know about the latest fellowship being offered by The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow (WCDH).

We provide uninterrupted writing time, a European-style gourmet dinner prepared five nights a week and served in our community dining room, the camaraderie of other professional writers when desired, and a community kitchen stocked with the basics for other meals.
