We are looking for institutions – colleges, national parks, museums, philantrophic institutions supporting the arts – to co-host this programme with Moonriver Lodge. We are committed to hosting one writer or artist at a time with each institution.
The writer/artist will be expected to engage with the Moonriver Lodge community and be part of the Moonriver Lodge Team contributing to the sustainable development of Moonriver Lodge and its surrounding communities & land. Other community concerns include Sigar Highlands, Cameron Highlands, the Kinta Valley and the surrounding Nature Reserve corridor. Writers/Artists-in-Residence may offer classes or engage in community work by way of public art education or public programmes or art exhibitions.
Note that writers/artists-in-residence will be considered as part of the Moonriver Lodge household and hence will be expected to do household chores.

A collection of essays/blogs
