Eligibility:

Overview

The Computational Writing residency will allow writers to explore working at the intersection of computing and literary art, not only by using pre-developed tools but also by directly undertaking programming. The residency will consider how computation can be means for reflecting on one’s own writing process as well as for processing anything from small, curated collections of words to large text corpora.

This self-directed residency offers the opportunity to work away from the constraints of everyday life. Delve deep into your creative project and take advantage of the artistic community of your peers around you. The program provides opportunities for consultations with mentors, and optional group sessions led by guest mentors that allow writers to explore literary techniques, aspects, and devices that you may find useful in your practice.

You may also sign up for additional walks and day trips within Banff National Park as well as campus-wide activities organized by our Participant Resources team.

This flexible program allows you to choose the amount of support you are looking for. All program elements are optional.

What does the program offer?

This 13-day residency provides thematic teaching from faculty members, Q&A sessions, public events, and one-on-one workshopping.

Instructors will discuss ideas, experiences, and obstacles that participants may be encountering with their writing across genre.

Who should apply?

Experienced writers and programmers looking to explore the future of digital compositional techniques. We welcome writers from all backgrounds, and all gender identities and expressions.

The 360 XOCHI QUETZAL Artist and Writer's Residency Program is located on Lake Chapala, the largest lake in Mexico, where the perfect year-round climate and stunning lake and mountain views have long established the region as an international artist mecca. Residents will be inspired by the natural beauty, history and culture of this special part of central Mexico. Chapala is located 25 minutes from Guadalajara International Airport (GDL) and 45 minutes from Guadalajara, one of the largest cities in Mexico boasting abundant cultural resources: museums, galleries, theatre and artist supplies. Xochi Quetzal is the Aztec goddess of creativity and fertility and protector of artisans. She is sure to inspire you during your stay!

 

MISSION: Our aim is to support artists, writers and musicians who would benefit from having uninterrupted time to devote to their creativity. By providing affordable live/work spaces in a beautiful and culturally rich area, we hope that our residents can make artistic progress without the stress and distractions of daily life.

There is no formal application, just check our website for descriptions, pictures, pricing and availability of the spaces that are located at the historic Villa QQ Hotel.This is a perfect opportunity to finish a manuscript, prepare for a show, collect your thoughts, or plan your next body of work. It will be helpful to read some of the interviews with creatives who have come to Chapala for a personal residency 

LIVE WORK SPACES: Each space at the Villa QQ Hotel has a private entrance, sitting area, bedroom and full bathroom. Your residency also includes free wi-fi, all utilities, weekly maid service, (weekly laundry pickup is available for an additional charge) and a 22-page Residency Handbook.

WHAT IS CHAPALA LIKE? In a word, charming. This is a small town with a population of 25,000. You will hear horses trotting along the cobblestone boulevard in the morning on their way to the stables. Cowboys ride by using their cell phones. Birdsong accompanies you throughout the day. In the winter, thousands of white pelicans entertain us on the lake. Trees blaze with psychedelic color year round. The mountains turn green during our 5 month rainy season (June - Oct). Vendors pass by during the day hawking fresh strawberries, bottled water, and ice cream.Read more about Chapala on our website

 

FUN: All live/work spaces are walking distance to a park with a running track, pool, tennis courts and walking trails. You are also minutes from the malecon, a park-like promenade that runs along the lake for a mile. The lake is surrounded by hundreds of mountains and you will enjoy spectacular sunsets almost every night. The weather is sunny 300 days a year with average daytime temperatures in the 70s. Other nearby activities include hiking, dancing, bird-watching and thermal springs.

 

COMMUNITY: Chapala and nearby Ajijic have dozens of cafes, galleries, cultural centers, art openings, and hundreds of artists to connect or study with. Everything you need is within walking distance and bus service is frequent and inexpensive. This is a safe place to live and work and the Villa QQ Hotel grounds are locked and secure.

 

MISC:  Although speaking a little Spanish will make your time here more culturally integrated, you do not need to speak the language to get what you need. You are just a 5 minute walk from many stores, restaurants and buses.
