Ledig House Residency

Ledig House
Here's a residency in the US that sounds marvellous. Ledig House International Writers Residency (from Paperback Writer Blog)

Two and a half hours north of New York City in the town of Omi, in the scenic Hudson River Valley
Ledig House provides all meals, and each night a cook prepares dinner.

Deadline for spring session: 20 November 2009
Spring session is March 12-June 4

You'd need to arrange your own travel. There may be a possibility of a travel grant from the arts council.

Read the details here. Includes:

# How did you hear about Ledig House?

# A biographical sketch including publications, performances and writing credits.

# One non-returnable copy of your latest published work. If unpublished, send a ten page sample of your latest work.

# A one page description of the work to be undertaken while at Ledig House.

# One letter of recommendation.

# One self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) for notification. (Non-US applicants are asked to include a sufficient "international postage coupon" in lieu of stamps.)

(this will be hard as these are not for sale in Ireland)

Applicants should specify a preference for the spring or fall session as well as the amount of time desired - no shorter than two weeks and no longer than two months.

Again hard for any artist with a full time job or family commitments or a dog etc.
