Since its founding in 1992, Writers Omi at Ledig House has hosted hundreds of authors and translators, representing more than fifty countries. Published writers and translators of every type of literature are welcome. International, cultural and creative exchange is a foundation of our mission, and a wide distribution of national background is an important part of our selection process.

In early November, Writers Omi hosts an annual Translation Lab, in which 4 English language translators are invited to a fully funded residency to work alongside the writers whose work they translate.

Sarah Ladipo Manyika and Suzanne Ushie are currently Fall residents for 2016. Click here to see other 2016 residents and here to submit before deadline date of October 20, 2016.
