Fellowship Award and Residency

Fellowship Award and Residency

The Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow is pleased to announce the winner of the 2024 “Telling True Stories” Fellowship.

Phyllis Unterschuetz was selected from eighty applications received from writers across the U.S. and overseas. This fellowship had to be historically accurate, and tell a compelling story, could take a variety of forms, including memoirs, autobiography, biography, history, journalism, and even drama and poetry. Phyllis will receive a two-week residency at the Writers’ Colony at Dairy Hollow.

Linda Leavell, the sponsor and one of the judges said, “The judges for the fellowship were unanimous in their enthusiasm for Phyllis Unterschuetz’s application. Her autobiographical writing sample is a superb example of narrative nonfiction. It tells a poignant coming-of-age story that is vivid with sensual detail and emotional candor..”

Phyllis’ residency will take place September 9 – 21 and will include a presentation for residents of Eureka Springs. For more information, visit the Colony’s website
