The Murie Center’s Pattie Layser Writer-In-Residence Program provides an opportunity for writers, digital and multi-media experts ― with a concentration or specialization in environmental conservation ― to experience the surroundings that helped inspire the work of Olaus, Mardy, Adolph and Louise Murie, and which now serve to advance their legacy. The purpose of our program is to offer a residency to individuals interested in highlighting and promoting the importance of conserving wild lands, wildlife, open spaces and natural habitats, through the written word and/or diverse forms of multi-media.
The location of the Murie Ranch – a National Historic Landmark District in Grand Teton National Park – will enable the resident to immerse themselves in a secluded, natural setting adjacent to the Snake River, at the base of the Teton Mountains. The Murie Ranch is in Moose, Wyoming, which is approximately a 20 minute drive north of the Town of Jackson.
Application deadline is Feb. 27.
