Millay Colony Now Offers "Virtual" and "Two-Week" Residencies

I am so thrilled to see the Millay Colony recognizing that many artists are parents or have full-time jobs and cannot take off for a full month's residency. They have two new types of residencies:

The Two-Week Residency
In order to accommodate artists who cannot partake of a month-long residency, the Millay Colony is now offering two two-week sessions in the month of September only, for up to seven artists per session...

The "Virtual" Residency
This new residency is specifically for working artists and/or artists with children who cannot spend prolonged time away from home but could benefit from the support of a residency in modified form...

The deadline for these and regular applications is coming up on October 1, 2012, for the upcoming 2013 year, so get working on those applications!

Wow, Bernie! Thanks for posting this. It *is* nice to notice these artist programs acknowledging that writers and artists sometimes have families, too.
