Artist and writer residencies at Taleamor Park

The Taleamor Park 2017 residency season has started, with four May residents arriving from New York (two), New Mexico, and Vermont.

May and June residencies are full, and we are currently accepting applications for the few remaining visual artist and writer residency places in July, August, September, or October.

Taleamor Park is located in the countryside near Chicago and Lake Michigan. Residents live in a lovely 1854 Italianate farmhouse that has two bathrooms, two kitchens, a laundry room, two common rooms, four private air-conditioned bedrooms, a library, a writing nook, and a paper studio.

Vintage outbuildings offer private studio spaces. Verdant walking trails wind through fields of grain to woods and ponds and scenic vistas.

The Taleamor Park website includes comments from most of Taleamor Park’s 2016 residents as well as links to their personal websites.

There is a simple online application form, ideally due six weeks before the start date of a residency, but later applications will be considered if space remains.
