The Translation Lab at Art Omi: Writers (the writers’ retreat formerly know as Ledig House) is an excellent thing to apply for. The program allows four pairs of translators and their authors to work together on the beautiful, wooded, sculpture-studded grounds of Art Omi for 12 days of intense collaboration. This year’s Lab is scheduled for Nov. 7 – 18 2017.
DW Gibson, Director of Art Omi: Writers, writes:
All residencies are fully funded, including airfare and local transport from New York City to the Omi International Arts Center in Ghent, NY. Please note: accepted applicants must be available for the duration of the Translation Lab (November 7-18, 2017). Late arrivals and early departures are not possible. Please do not submit a proposal unless both parties involved (translator and writer) are available for all dates.
Each proposal should be no more than three pages in length and provide the following information:
• Brief biographical sketches for the translator and writer associated with each project
• Publishing status for proposed projects (projects that do not yet have a publisher are still eligible)
• A description of the proposed project
• Contact information (physical address, email, and phone)
Sample translation optional. For more information, see the Art Omi: Writers website.
All proposals and inquires should be sent by e-mail to DW Gibson at Ledig House. Proposals will be accepted until July 15, 2018.
