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.


Call for submission: Visual Art, photography, poetry, and writing, for a book on collective rebellion.

In the ongoing fight for power among world leaders, the innocent bloodshed of victims, and the outstanding resilience and unity people have shown, we bring you: 

An initiative supporting inspiring strong-hearted individuals, who are an example of how wartime/uprising affects place, structure, land, culture, and individuals.
