“Art Omi: Writers” Translation Lab 2019

“Art Omi: Writers” is now seeking proposals for Translation Lab 2019, a 12-day special, intensive residency for four collaborating writer-translator teams in the fall of 2019.

More Details

“Art Omi: Writers” will host four English language translators in New York’s Hudson Valley for 12 days. These translators will be invited along with the writers whose work is being translated into English. This focused residency will provide an integral stage of refinement, allowing translators to dialogue with the writers about text-specific questions. It will also 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.

Opportunity Focus Areas:

  • Literature
  • Translation
  • Poetry
  • Theater
  • Film
