Writers Residencies at Omi International Arts Center

web site

The online period for 2014 residencies is now open.

Each applicant is required to provide 4 (four) separate items in total:

1. A cover letter, which provides the following details: country of birth, country of residency, the language in which you write, your preferred Writers Omi session (Spring or Fall or both), and your preferred dates. Additionally, please let us know how you heard about Writers Omi at Ledig House, why you want to come to Writers Omi and what you expect to get from the experience.

2. A brief (2 pages, maximum) statement about your work history, referencing publications, performances and writing credits. This can be submitted in CV format.

3. A writing sample, no more than 50 pages. (Please be sure to indicate if the writing is published or unpublished; if it is published please provide details.)

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

Your writing sample does NOT have to be an English translation; please submit your writing sample in your mother tongue. All other documentation must be submitted in English.

Your cover letter should be provided in the designated Cover Letter field. Items 2-4 should each be provided as separately uploaded files.

In addition to these requirements, every applicant must arrange to have a letter of recommendation submitted online separately. The letter can be provided by a fellow writer, teacher, editor, literary agent, or any informed individual who can speak to your character and work.

The individual submitting your letter of recommendation will need to establish a Submittable account in his or her own name. The referee must upload a letter using the "Letter of Reference" field. The letter should be sent as an uploaded text document.

Applicants please share the link below with your letter of reference writer so that he or she can submit their letter of reference via the Submittable system: https://ledighouse.submittable.com/submit/23759

The letter of recommendation should be uploaded directly by the individual who is submitting the recommendation and NOT by the applicant. Letters uploaded by the applicant will not be considered and the application will be categorized as incomplete.

To be considered for a 2014 residency, your application (including separate letter of recommendation) must be received electronically by the end of the day, October 20, 2013.

Notifications will be made no later than February 1, 2014.

We look forward to receiving your application.
