Hemingway-Pfeiffer Writer-in-Residence Position Open

December 11, 2020


PIGGOTT — The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center in Piggott is announcing its 2021 writer-in-residence position is open.  The residency runs July 6 – Aug. 7, 2021, and includes lodging at a beautiful loft apartment on the downtown square in Piggott, over the City Market coffee shop. 

The writer-in-residence will also have the opportunity to work in the studio where Pulitzer Prize- and Nobel Prize-winning author Ernest Hemingway worked on his acclaimed novel A Farewell to Arms during an extended stay with his wife’s family in 1928. He was married at that time to Piggott native Pauline Pfeiffer.

The residency includes a $1,000 stipend to help cover food and transportation.

If public health conditions allow, the writer-in-residence will be expected to serve as mentor for a week-long retreat for writers at the educational center.  This retreat will be open 8-10 a.m. to writers from the region.  The recipient may be asked to hold one or two readings of his/her own work in the region.  The remainder of the month will be free to the writer-in-residence to work on his/her own work in a safe, socially distanced environment.

Candidates with a Master of Arts or Master of Fine Arts in a relevant field are preferred.  Send a cover letter, resume and writing sample of roughly 20 pages to executive director Dr. Adam Long at [email protected] by Feb. 28, 2021.  Questions can also be directed to Long.  For more information about the museum or lodging (the Inn at Piggott), visit

The writer-in-residence program is made possible through underwriting sponsorship by Piggott State Bank.

The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center, an Arkansas State University Heritage Site, contributes to the understanding of the regional, national and global history of the 1920s and 1930s eras by focusing on the internationally connected Pfeiffer family of Piggott and their son-in-law and regular guest Ernest Hemingway. This includes drawing on Hemingway’s influence as a noted American author to foster interest in literature and the arts and promote excellence in both.
