About Gentle House

Gentle House and Tupelo Press are preparing to open an exciting new residency program in the fall of 2023, with an extraordinary gift by Sean Mac Falls (1957 – 2023) in Gentle House, a property and residency donated to Tupelo Press as an artist retreat in order to serve a global community of diverse poets, playwrights, and songwriters who seek the space to create extraordinary books, poetry, plays, films and music.

A literary nonprofit, our mission is to support visionary writers and artists whose creative work and ideas will shape our culture now and for generations to come. Tupelo Press plans to offer writing, music, and playwriting retreats, broadening what we offer to honor Se├ín Mac Falls’ profound gift and deep commitment to the arts.

Gentle House supports writers by offering a quiet sustaining space that facilitates the focus needed for generating creativity in writing, music, and playwriting.
