Cave Canem Residency


Date: 6:00am EDT June 1, 2020 - 11:30pm June 30, 2020

Welcome to the Cave Canem Fellow!

The Rose O’Neill Literary House partners with Cave Canem, the nation’s leading organization for African American poets, to provide a month-long residency in historic Chestertown, Maryland annually to one Cave Canem Fellow. Cave Canem’s mission is to serve as “a home for the many voices of African American poetry and is committed to cultivating the artistic and professional growth of African American poets.” Chosen through a rigorous application process, the Fellow will spend time researching and writing in Chestertown. Our 2019 Fellow was poet David Mills. Check our website, lithouse.washcoll.edu, for more details.
