We are currently accepting applications for some spaces still available this year--through December 22, 2017. Applications are also accepted now, for residencies that will run from January 3 - December 21, 2018. 

In keeping with the ODYSSEYS Costa Rica commitment to minimizing our ecological footprint, we prefer to receive all materials electronically. If you wish to send part of your application by regular post, please email us first at OdysseysCostaRica@gmail.com. We will send instructions including our postal address.

It is important for each applicant to carefully review our web site descriptions of what we offer for work space. Typically, writers are provided a standard desk or table and chair (adjustable when possible but not guaranteed.) Many of our visual artists are photographers, videographers, multi-media artists and plein-air painters who work out and about. Our host families typically have indoor and covered outdoor garden areas with natural light and space for work tables and easels. Visual artists who require more elaborate indoor studio space should inquire in advance, as we sometimes have a separate studio space available upon request. For composers we have various options, including the possibility of a professional electronic keyboard used with headphones in the home stay environment, and/or scheduled piano/studio time in a local music institute.
