Baldwin House Urban Writing Residency

Baldwin House Urban Writing Residency is named for one of modern literature’s most notable Black writers, James Baldwin. Twenty poets and writers of color based in Northeast Ohio and beyond are accepted into the Baldwin House residency. Ten Northeast Ohio-based writers meet during the summer and fall Baldwin House residency period, and 10 writers from areas outside of Northeast Ohio meet during the winter and spring. Baldwin House writers meet once per week for 8 consecutive weeks with a lead facilitator, and for their remaining three weeks in residence, they work with a professional mentor.
