Residents had access to the Carmago Foundation campus, including a reference library, gardens, and a theater. The Carmago Foundation campus is directly on the Mediterranean Sea and approximately 20 miles from Marseille. Residents were provided with a private apartment with a kitchen, but were responsible for their own meals. Writers enrolled full-time in a degree-granting program were ineligible. Applicants submitted a curriculum vitae, a letter of intent, two professional references, and three excerpts of up to 10 pages each of poetry or prose with a $40 application fee by March 9.
