Residencies of two weeks to two months were offered from March through June and September through November at Ledig House, a writers colony situated on 300 acres in the Hudson River Valley town of Omi, New York. Up to 20 poets, fiction writers, creative nonfiction writers, and translators could be accommodated during each session. The residencies included room and board and opportunities to meet with New York City publishing professionals. Using the online submission system, writers submitted a writing sample of up to 50 pages, a résumé, a one-page project proposal, and a letter of recommendation (sent directly to the program by the reference) by October 20. There was no application fee. Visit the website for complete guidelines.
