Since 1992, the writer's residency Ledig House has welcomed hundreds of authors and translators from more than fifty countries. It forms part of the Omi International Arts Centre and is located in the historic Hudson Valley, two-and-a-half hours north of New York City.

Apart from several studios, the old manor house also offers a spacious kitchen, TV room and library, which are shared by ten authors per stay. Weekly meetings are organised with important names in the literary field.

This annual exchange is an initiative of Ledig House and Passa Porta.
