We're thrilled that Teri Carter received this award. Here's the official announcement from the Daisy Pettles House.

From Teri...Excepting a few upcoming pieces for The Washington Post, I’m focusing this summer solely on my book about stepfamilies. I have the bad first draft and am now working on the first full revision, which I hope to finish by the end of August. I was fortunate to be awarded the Daisy Pettles Residency for June — $1,000 and a month alone in a beautiful, 100 year old, Indiana house — to do the work without the normal distractions of daily life. A real gift.

Congrats Teri! We hope your residency is magical and productive.

Like many businesses, the LWR halted operations in March due to the Covid 19 pandemic. We're pleased to announce that the space re-opened on June 1st.

We've implemented new safety protocols and have rearranged the workspaces to allow for social distancing and to ensure your comfort and safety. We think it looks marvelous!

Thanks for visiting the website. Because of KY's corona virus response measures, the Lexington Writer's Room has pushed the pause button on our workspace. If you're a KY writer interested in becoming a member, please go ahead and fill out the inquiry form on the Become a Member page. We'd love to learn more about your work and get your inquiry processed and ready for our re-start.

If you're a potential donor/supporter, check out the Support Us page for ways you can help. As a small nonprofit organization, we love donations! We don't have employees, so all the funds we raise go directly toward operating costs that enable us to offer our writers subsidized workspaces and programming.

In the meantime, we're engaging with our members virtually and working on our upcoming Patreon program. Stay safe and well.
