Bethany Arts Community offers residencies to emerging and established artists for the development of both new works and works in progress.

For the 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. In light of current travel restrictions, applications are open only to individuals who reside in New York, New Jersey and Connecticut.

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. Residents will find both solitude and community with a small cohort of other poets and artists sharing the residency.

The Poetry Residency is for 7 days. While we cannot accommodate family members, the program is designed with the intention to make it more accessible to those whose family or work commitments make longer residencies difficult to attend.

The Poetry Residency includes room, board and $150 stipend.
