Escape to Create

Escape to Create


Escape to Create is a month-long multi-disciplinary retreat for writers, artists, scholars and other creative people who are fully engaged with art and ideas. Established in 1993. Escape to Create has sponsored many artists engaged in a wide range of disciplines including the literary arts, fine arts, musical composition, crafts, photography, film, history and architecture.


During the residency, artists are required to give a public presentation as community service. This usually includes a lecture, a reading and book signing, or participation in a group panel or exhibit.

Studio Information

Artists live and work in private cottages that are generously donated in support of their creative endeavors. Artists’ creative processes must be adaptable to this unique environment. The committee provides tarps, worktables, electronic keyboards, task lighting and other essentials required to secure a comfortable and productive workspace


The residency is located in the coastal community of Seaside in Northwest Florida.
