Our 2016 Artists-in-Residency include Jerry Spinelli, Eileen Spinelli, Meg Medina, and Suzanne Bloom. The Highlights Foundation’s residency program celebrates the commitment these authors and illustrators have made to the field of children’s literature.
Each artist-in-residence will spend four days at the Highlights Foundation Retreat Center working on projects for publication. To raise awareness about these upcoming works, we invite other artists – writers, poets, and illustrators – to join them during their residency. While days will be spent on individual projects, mealtimes will bring all artists together to share farm-fresh food and conversation. After dinner, our artists-in-residence will host informal sharing and feedback sessions for all works in progress.
If you would like to join one of these artist-in-residence sessions, so that you can learn more about our artists’ upcoming releases, share meals and conversation, and take part in informal feedback sessions, please email Jo Lloyd or call her at 877-288-3410, to sign up for any number of days you choose.
