Congratulations to the
Selected Writers and Composers - Fall 2021 and Winter 2022
We are excited to announce the selected individuals from the recent call for writers and composers.  We had 94 applications for the five offered residency time slots.  The six jurors did a great job reviewing the submissions and they were impressed by the talent and quality of the applications.  We always wish we could host more people and we did add two more residency time slots to be able to invite a total of seven people to experience an artist residency in Good Hart this coming fall and winter.  Each one of these upcoming writers/composers-in-residence will have the opportunity to work with one of our nonprofit partners to get them out into the local community so they can share their talents with you.  

We thank everyone that applied to the program for sharing their time and talent with us and we wish you all the best in your creative work.  We also thank the jurors who volunteer their time to review the applications and to make the hard decisions to select the top candidates. We are looking forward to what the future holds when we have the opportunity to host these awesome individuals in Good Hart.  Thank you for all your support in making this happen.

Sue & Bill Klco
