Hamad Bin Khalifa University Press (Doha, Qatar) has partnered with Art Omi (NY, USA) to sponsor one aspiring Arabic writer to participate in the 2020 Art Omi Writers’ Residency Program.
This annual residency provides writers with the space and time away from daily pressures to create, and to bring experts in the field to dialogue with the residents.
Daytime is reserved for writing and quiet activities, while evenings are more communal. Noted editors, agents and book scouts are invited to share dinner and conversation on both creative and practical subjects, offering insight into the workings of the publishing industry, and introductions to some of its key professionals.
The retreat is held over four weeks in either the spring or fall seasons at the Art Omi residences located in Ghent, New York on 300 acres of rolling farmland with spectacular views of the Catskills and the Hudson River Valley.
The program’s international emphasis provides exposure for global literary voices and reflects the spirit of cultural exchange that is essential to both HBKU Press’s and Art Omi’s mission.
For more details and to apply for the residency, please download and complete the application package below and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for the application is 30 September 2019.
