Trailer Blaze is a week-long comics residency at The Sou’wester Lodge and Vintage Trailer Park in Seaview, WA. The annual residency offers invaluable time and space for emerging and established women artists and writers to do their work without interruption by an increasingly distracting world. Trailer Blaze is also an environment for work to get better—allowing time for contemplation, exploration of the natural world, and fostering connections within the community so we can share ideas, resources, and form lasting bonds.
Applicants need to have a project to work on during the residency, and proof of this should be reflected in your application. Residents are responsible for their own travel, though ride shares are often easily arranged. Because of our fundraising efforts, your only cost is food and travel.We use an inclusive definition of “women” and we welcome trans, genderqueer, and non-binary people.
The application process will be open again in January 2023.
Our first Trailer Blaze residency was a success, and so much fun! Eroyn Franklin, Kelly Froh, Janice Headley, Sarah Stuteville, Jessica Hoffman, Robyn Jordan, Mita Mahato, and Emilie Bess hunkered down to work on their projects, give & receive feedback, take walks on the beach, and join up for great meals!
