Announcing the Catamaran Mon Tiki Artist and Writer in Residence Fellowships
Announcing the Mon Tiki Artist and Writer in Residence Fellowships
A private cabin on the catamaran Mon Tiki, a hand-built, neo-Polynesian catamaran during her voyage up the East Coast from Florida to Montauk NY. This will be an inshore and near-shore trip, with Mon Tiki at anchor in a quiet spot more nights than not. There will be many opportunities to go ashore, and there is good cellphone coverage most of the way.
Because you want some uninterrupted time in an inspiring location to think and create.
As soon as you get here.
One artist (a primarily non-textual professionally creative person) and one writer.
Find Mon Tiki (it’s really not that hard, lots of clues, including her captain’s personal email address and cell phone number, and daily, sometime hourly location updates, and more). Once you find Mon Tiki, contact her captain and make arrangements to rendezvous.
These fellowships favor a can-do attitude and a moderate level of risk tolerance. No, not the risk that you will die, Mon Tiki is a US Coast Guard certified vessel with state of the art safety equipment. You’re not going to die. No the risk is that you’ll make the effort to secure your space only to end up missing the boat. (A pun! Get it?)
So then, what are you waiting for. Mon Tiki is presently in Sebastian Florida, but she’s on the move (though at an average speed of 5kts she doesn’t move far each day.) Find her. Contact her captain and say, “I want this! I’m in! I’ll meet you at (somewhere along the route)!”
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and you will not regret it. You’ll have lots of free time to think, see the East Coast from an entirely new perspective, and it will look great on your resume.
Ready? Set? GO!
