    Writers' Residencies and Colonies Wiki
    If only I'd known, I'd have brought.... Fill in the blank with flashlight, coffee press, rain boots, grand piano. People that have been to the place you're going already know what you'll wish you've brought, or known about the geography, local flora and fauna, blue laws. Share your experiences here with those who come after you.
    ...
    See the menu bar in the right margin for a list of the pages. This has been seeded with blank pages for a few residencies. Please add pages for those you've been to that are missing.
    Here's an essay from The Morning News with Alexander Chee's take on colonies and residencies.
    And here's a podcast of a panel discussion on colonies and residencies.

    What You Should Know While You're There: Writers will often hold readings in the evenings or visual artists will hold open studios. These are usually announced at dinner. Take advantage of the opportunity to get to know other artists and writers, but don't feel like you have to participate in all social gatherings or attend all readings. There is usually someone there with a car so you can catch a ride to a grocery store five minutes away. For art supplies, paper and printer cartridges, the drive is about 15 minutes.
    Feedback From Those Who Have Been There: VCCA is great for people who don't want total isolation. The setting is beautiful and rural, but not too far from civilization.
