The Millay Colony officially closes its residency program at the end of November. At that time we begin four months of juries, campus repairs, and administrative work. This allows us to be ready for the next years artists-in-residence.

Wintertide is set up as an opportunity for artists, writers & composers to stay at the Colony to prepare for upcoming exhibits, publication deadlines, or as an inspired place to focus on their creative work.


The WinterA tree in winter.tide program is available during December, January, February, and March

As with our regular artists residency season, a room and studio is provided, along with bedding and towels. There is no chef available during winter months, each resident is responsible for bringing their own food and meal preparation. A car is required for those staying longer than a week.
