Millay Arts Core Residency : March 1

Associated Residency Program

Our Core Residency program -- we will celebrate our 50th anniversary in July 2023 -- is one of the longest-running in country. Judged blindly by jurors who are practicing professionals and/or alumni, from April-November each year we welcome 6-7 multidisciplinary creators to come to Steepletop (the historic estate of Pulitzer Prize-winning poet/activist Edna St. Vincent Millay) for one month stays (June and September also have two-week session availabilities). We have a number of fellowships that come with stipends available. To date we have hosted over 3000 exceptional poets, nonfiction/fiction writers, screenwriters, playwrights, filmmakers, photographers, composers, visual and performance artists. Works made possible by a residency enrich lives and communities globally: our alumni are consistently recognized with international honors (MacArthur and National Book Awards; Pulitzer, Lambda Literary and Pen America prizes, Guggenheim Fellowships and others). Core residencies are fully-subsidized and free of charge; they include: groceries, chef-prepared communal dinners, private bedroom, private studio and shared living/kitchen/dining.
