I have a good news! Writers Omi International Residency at Ledig House has accepted my application for spring 2015. This will be my second residency in USA, the first one was in northern California, Djerassi Resident Artists Program , 2005. My book On Armenian Seashore was written there, in redwoods near Woodside.

Omi International Arts Center is located two and a half hours north of New York City in the  Hudson River Valley. Named for a neighboring village, Omi is close to the small town of Ghent, New York, as well as Albany and Hudson. My residency dates are March 20 to April 23. Before going to the residency, I will stay some days in New York City. Those of my friends who live in New York and would like to meet me, can do that before March 20. When I buy tickets, I will write exact date of my arrival to New York.
