The Edward F. Albee Foundation maintains the William Flanagan Memorial  Creative Persons Center (better known as "The Barn") in Montauk, on  Long Island in New York, as a residence for writers and visual artists  of all media.  

The  Center is open from June through mid-October, and can accommodate  comfortably up to five persons at a time. Residencies are for 4 or 6 week periods.   The standards for admission are, simply, talent and need.

Located approximately two miles from the center of  Montauk and the Atlantic Ocean, "The Barn" rests in a secluded knoll  which offers privacy and a peaceful atmosphere.  The Foundation expects  all those accepted for residence to work seriously and to conduct  themselves in such a manner as to aid fellow residents in their  endeavors.  Writers are offered a large room; visual artists are offered a smaller  room and a large studio space.  Residents are responsible for their food,  travel, and other expenses.  The environment is simple and communal.   Residents are expected to do their share in maintaining the condition of  "The Barn" as well as its peaceful environment.
