Do you need time to write

without distractions and interruptions?

Give yourself the gift of time.

Apply for a residency at Rockvale Writers’ Colony!


The Writing Porch

Our old farmhouse will serve as your home away from home. We have spacious bedroom/bathroom suites, wide porches, a large kitchen, and inviting common areas. Write at the desk in your room or in one of the writing nooks tucked in the library or writing porch. If you need a break, treat yourself to the inspiration of open pastures and rolling hills.

Rockvale Writers’ Colony, located in College Grove, TN, about 45 minutes south of Nashville, welcomes writers of all genres and backgrounds. As you explore this website, we invite you to view our photos, read about our weekend retreats, and imagine yourself as a writer-in-residence. 

We are accepting applications for 2020 residencies NOW! Apply soon! We look forward to welcoming you to the colony!
