Ledig House International Writers Residency

Ledig House International Writers Residency is located approximately two and a half hours north of New York City in the town of Omi, in the scenic Hudson River Valley.

Writers and translators from all fields are encouraged to apply for a residence lasting anywhere from one week to two months.

Up to 20 writers per session (10 at a given time) live and write on the stunning 300 acre grounds and sculpture park that overlooks the Catskill Mountains.

Ledig House provides all meals, and each night a cook prepares dinner.

Days are reserved as quiet hours, while evenings afford a more communal environment.

During each session, several guests from the New York publishing community are invited for dinner and discussion.

Bicycles, a swimming pool and nearby tennis court are available for use.

Unless otherwise arranged, writers must provide their own transportation to and from Ledig House.

A colony car will be sent to pick writers up at the train station in nearby Hudson, New York.

All writers should be proficient in English.

Deadline:

The annual deadline for applications must be postmarked by November 20
