Call for Poets!

In recognition of the 27th anniversary of National Poetry Month in April 2023, Bethany Arts Community (BAC) in Ossining, NY is offering its third annual residency focused on poetry.

Bethany Arts Community designs its residencies to allow artists an opportunity to enjoy an environment where artists from different disciplines can work near each other, creating opportunities for cross-pollination, collaboration, and connection. Residents will find both solitude and community with a small cohort of other poets and artists sharing the residency.

For our Poetry Residency, we encourage applications from individual poets as well as poet/artist pairs. Poet/Artist pairs must consist of one poet and another artist in any medium. Poet/Artist pairs must apply jointly and include a proposal for a collaborative project while in residency and CVs for both members of the team.

The Poetry Residency is for one week, Monday, April 3rd to Monday, April 10th, artists are provided room & board, a private studio, 3 basic meals a day, and a $225 stipend upon completion of the residency. Artist is responsible for transportation to and from BAC.

Application Deadline: January 3, 2023 at 11:59 PM EST
