For the very first time, 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.
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.
For more details on the requirements, terms and conditions, and to apply for the residency, please visit hbkupress.com. The deadline for the application is 30 September 2019. HBKU Press will announce the shortlist of finalists on 15 October 2019, and the one finalist who will attend the retreat will be announced on 25 November 2019.Click here to register
