Mini-Residency Program

(Two-night minimum — 10-day maximum)

We welcome writers and readers to spend a weekend or weeklong sojourn into the arts of writing and reading. Our in-house library, along with the University of the South’s DuPont Library, provides writers and readers with wonderful resources to enrich the literary life.

This program is available to guests without an application. Please know that your stay here as part of our mini-residency program helps to fund future writers’ stays who come to us through our writer-in-residence program. We thank you. We encourage you to enjoy the gardens, hike the many trails, and immerse yourself in the natural setting during your stay at Rivendell and in Sewanee.

Mini-residencies start at $125/night.
