The Bogliasco Foundation offers monthlong residencies from early January to mid-May, and from mid-September to late December, to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers in the coastal fishing village of Bogliasco, Italy, approximately 7 miles southeast of Genoa. Residents are provided with a private room, workspace, and meals. Residents are invited to participate in the Genoa International Poetry Festival and attend cultural events in Bogliasco and Genoa. There is no cost to attend the residency, but residents are responsible for their own travel expenses. Students enrolled in a degree-granting program at the time of application are ineligible. Using the online submission system submit up to three writing samples of any length published in the last five years, a curriculum vitae, a project proposal, and three letters of recommendation with a $30 application fee by January 15 for the subsequent fall semester or April 15 for the subsequent spring semester. Visit the website for an application and complete guidelines.
