Till began as a collaboration between Arne Pihl and Chelsea Werner-Jatzke in 2013. The goal is to offer time and space for writers by creating a realistic residency model.
Till seeks to foster literary exchange and build community among writers through scalable, affordable, and local writing programs. Open to writers of all genre and stages of their career, Till increases access to the literary world through writing practices, feedback forums, workspaces, literary readings, and publication opportunities. By decreasing barriers to the pursuit of a writing practice, Till cultivates a space for diverse voices and an opening where writers can create, inspire, and grow their craft.
