"One of the best decisions I made for my artistic life last year was applying to Guild Hall's Artist-in-Residence Program. There is simply no substitute for the efficiency and creative power that can be achieved while on a dedicated work retreat away from one’s everyday environment. Spending a month in the beautiful guest house in East Hampton rejuvenated my writing practice and allowed me to be present and focused in ways city life often prevents us from being. I met extraordinary people from the Guild Hall community and forged unexpected friendships with artists from all over the country. If I could go back tomorrow, I would." –Scott R. Sheppard (Fall 2018 Artist Resident)

Applications for our Artist-In-Residence program close tomorrow Friday, December 13 at 11:59pm EST. Don’t miss your opportunity to apply at guildhall.org/air

Tom Yuill
About the Guild Hall Artist in Residence Program:
Communitas

"I was Guild Hall Poet in Residence after I had been to graduate school at Boston University and taught there for several years, after having been an associate professor, after I had married and resettled in Virginia, and after I had written my first book of poetry, Medicine Show, which had been published by the University of Chicago Press. My seminar professors in graduate school were Robert Pinsky, Derek Walcott and Rosanna Warren. I had been incredibly blessed. I had no idea how much I could still learn.

The Poet in Residence experience at Guild Hall was realizing the new book of poetry I was then writing is really three new books, two of poetry and translation, and one literary biography; it was working longer hours on each poem as painter Arcmanoro S. Niles clanged on the piano downstairs and it was realizing there is no better background noise in the world; it was calling ourselves the Dunemere Riders because we went so many places together, and it was learning that painters and novelists and multi-media artists can help you as much with your new poems as other poets can. It was being taken to lunch by Alec and Hilaria Baldwin, and spending three hours discussing David Mamet with Alec, whose famous scene in Glengarry Glen Ross Mamet wrote especially for him; it was being asked by Carter Burwell about teaching at Harvard—something I only did a few times as a guest, but did do—then talking about losing our fathers, about transitioning from a punk band to doing film scores, about writing in a journal at the speed of thought then finding the germ of poetry in there; it was discussing investing and Roger Staubach with Marty Cohen, then imagining ways to weave entrepreneurial thinking into a literature curriculum; it was writing a poem inspired by Eric Fischl’s Swimming Lovers, getting ideas for new work from Bruce Wolosoff’s music, and it was working with the poet, Phil Schultz, being accorded gentle revelations peppered with remarks like, “You’re smart, yes, you’re well read…but I don’t care about this poem yet, Tom…do you think it would be better in first person?” It was kindness, encouragement, laughter.

And when it was over and I was elated and filled with new drafts and new ideas, swimming with love for new friends and new artistic possibilities, I went home, got to work, and found it was not over...it's never over…it's like the movable feast Hemingway (correctly) said he found Paris to be. Whether you get back often or less often than you would prefer, Guild Hall stays with you, keeps teaching you, remains inspirational. For a poet, the Guild Hall Artist in Residency is a mixture of pleasures and surprises, where your most urgent aspirations are met with joyous, continuing possibilities. Get there.” -Thomas Yuill (2016 Artist Resident)

Applications are now open for our Artist-In-Residence program!
Head over to guildhall.org/air to apply today before they close this Friday, December 13 at 11:59pm EST.

Tom Yuill's first book of poetry, Medicine Show, is published by the University of Chicago Press. He has poetry, translations, essays and interviews published or forthcoming in Newsday, A Public Space, Great River Review, Dalhousie Review, Salamander, Literary Imaginations, and featured on Poetry Daily, among many others. Yuill was Poet in Residence at Guild Hall in East Hampton, and has since been working on both a new full length collection of poetry and a chapbook of poetry. He is also writing a literary biography of the French poet Francois Villon, containing his own translations of Villon's poetry. Yuill teaches in the Honors College and English Department, and guest lectures in the French Department, at Old Dominion University, where he is also involved with conceptual development of the Entrepreneurial Center. His next collection of poetry is tentatively titled American Bull Terrier.

With 2020 almost upon us we’re grateful to have so many amazing moments to look back on and reflect with pride. Here’s a great one from our sold out performance with Rosanne Cash and John Leventhal as part of our Guitar Masters series in July.

Even with countless successful shows like these, ticket sales only cover a portion of our operating costs. We are almost 50% of the way to raising $75,000 for our Annual Fund but time is running out, so please donate at guildhall.org/donate today!

"Guild Hall offered me the perfect setting and level of support to be productive and make new work. The setting, East Hampton off-season, is serene. In just a few blocks you can walk to the library, downtown, historic buildings, to nature trails, or to the ocean. I was particularly drawn to the region for the chance to explore the landscapes and signs of accelerated erosion taking place in the coastal parks and preserves.” –Matthew Jensen (Spring 2019 Artist Resident)

Applications are now open for our Artist-In-Residence program!
Head over to guildhall.org/air to apply today.

"Spending my springtime in East Hampton to create, and having the overwhelming support of Guild Hall to fuel my creation, has been instrumental to my career. I'm so grateful for the beautiful warmth and energy of everyone at GH for taking a look at me, my work, and my hustle, and saying, "Yes, you. We want you here." A year and a half later, I've finished a seven week shoot for my documentary on my project Broken Bone Bathtub, which took me all over the country, including a return to Guild Hall for a full run of the experience. The team at GH and my fellow cohort have been wonderful contributions to my life and my work, and I couldn't be more grateful.” – @Siobhan O’Loughlin (Spring 2018 Artist Resident)
