The Norton Island Residency for Writers & Artists
 
 

Welcome to the new website of the Norton Island Residency for Writers & Artists, run by the Eastern Frontier Educational Foundation!

Located in Maine’s northerly “Downeast,” halfway between Mount Desert National Park and Campobello Island, one mile into the Atlantic Ocean, you’ll find an 150-acre island hosting a one-of-a-kind residency program.

Every summer, the Norton Island Residency for Writers & Artists hosts established writers, artists and musicians so they may develop and share their work in an extraordinarily beautiful and remote wilderness setting.
