What Do You Get?

Choice of two spacious rooms:

~The Treetop Room~

The entire second story replete with a king size bed, private bath, spacious marble writing table in front of a bank of windows overlooking the woods and yard. You will be up in the trees with cardinals and chickadees swooping past your window, and a bird’s-eye view of deer and wild turkey visiting the birdbath.

~ The Atlantic Room ~

So named because with windows open at night, you can hear the crashing of the waves on the shores of Atlantic Ocean beach. This room also provides access to a studio, large collection of art books, and gallery; private bath and walk-in closet; for a writer, sweet antique writing desk!

~ The Studio~

Artists, you have full access to studio, with plenty of work tables, sliding doors out to front and back,with plenty of natural light.

What Else Do You Get?

A living room for those cool evenings by the fire or to cozy up on the couch with a book; a sunroom overlooking the backyard, with the world’s most comfortable recliner; full kitchen with antique breakfast table; a spacious deck with dining table, lounge chairs, and outdoor grill. Not to mention, dishwasher, laundry, great Wi-Fi, spacious and private outdoor shower!

Best of all?

You are a five minute walk to the beach; take that walk at dusk to watch the sun set behind the dunes. There is also the use of a bike if you wish to explore the bay side and the inlets—spot that rare egret or blue heron!

HOW TO APPLY: • Submissions are on a rolling basis • All past and current contributors to The Woven Tale Press magazine are considered WTP fellows and are exempt from application process. Just contact us about what dates you would like to come stay! •A sample of your work is not required—we are most interested in writers and artists, or any professionals working in support of the arts, who  are appreciative of this home’s aesthetics: one of character and history, and that fosters creativity and the restorative. Simply submit a brief cover letter about how you imagine spending your time during your Hamptons stay (which may simply include long beach walks, or yoga on the deck!), and a resume or artist CV;  your preferred room and dates. Partner/spouse need not apply. We require only one application per room. • If you have a friend who would like to apply for the second room, they must submit a separate application, but partner/spouse need not apply. Only one party need sign the license agreement and pay the security deposit.

To submit or inquiries, write to Sandra at editor@thewoventalepress.net
