Writers Omi Accepting Applications for Translation Lab 2018 Residencies

Writers Omi at Ledig House, a part of Omi International Arts Center, is accepting proposals for its Translation Lab 2018, an intensive twelve-day residency for four collaborating writer-translator teams.

Through the program, translators, and the writers whose work is being translated, which will have the opportunity to speak with the writer whose work they are translating about text-specific questions. The lab also will serve 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, etc. — are eligible.

All residencies are 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.
