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.


The annual deadline for applications must be postmarked by November 20
