Writers Omi at Ledig House, a part of the Omi International Arts Center, is accepting proposals for its Translation Lab 2017, an intensive residency for four collaborating writer-translator teams in the fall of 2017.
Through the intensive twelve-day program, translators will be invited to work directly with the writers whose work is being translated about text-specific questions. The program also serves as an essential community-builder for English-language translators who are working to increase the amount of international literature available to English-language readers. All text-based projects — fiction, nonfiction, theater, film, poetry, and so on — are eligible.
The dates for Translation Lab 2017 are November 8-19. All residencies will be fully funded, including airfare and local transport from New York City to the Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, New York, located two and a half hours north of New York City in the historic Hudson River Valley.
Translators, writers, editors, and agents are eligible to apply.
See the Omi International Arts Center website for complete program guidelines and proposal submission instructions.
