The Bogliasco Foundation offers monthlong residencies from January to May and from September to December to poets, fiction writers, and creative nonfiction writers in the coastal fishing village of Bogliasco, Italy, located seven miles southeast of Genoa. Residents are provided with a private room, workspace, and meals, and are invited to attend cultural events in Bogliasco and Genoa. There is no cost to attend the residency, but residents are responsible for their own travel expenses. For residencies from January 2023 to May 2023, using only the online application system, writers submitted three writing samples published in the past five years (up to 15 pages of poetry or 25 pages of prose), a curriculum vitae, a project proposal, and three letters of recommendation with a $30 application fee by April 15, 2022. Though the foundation is not accepting applications for the fall 2022 semester, applicants for spring 2023 have the option of indicating their availability for fall 2022 in their application and will be considered for any openings for that semester. Visit the website for an application and complete guidelines.
