Hamad Bin Khalifa University Press (HBKU Press) has renewed its partnership with Art Omi: Writers (New York, USA) to sponsor one aspiring Arabic writer to participate in the HBKU Press & Art Omi: 2021 Writer’s Residency.
One Arabic writer will be selected to participate in the annual residency held in Ghent, New York. The retreat will provide the chosen writer with the space and time away from daily pressures to write and create at the Art Omi residences amidst the backdrop of 300 acres of rolling farmland with spectacular views of the Catskills and Hudson River Valley. There will also be opportunities to connect with other literary talents from around the world as well as publishers from the United States, who participate in the retreat as visiting experts.
