The Floating Omelette is a short writers’ residency for people who identify as queer. Taking place on a live-aboard boat in Bristol (UK), residencies last for two days and one night. Outcomes, which can be in any written form, will be published in print on the completion of every half-a-dozen residencies by Ink or Swim. The DIY nature of this residency means we are unfortunately unable to offer any funding.
The name of the residency originates from a series of interviews with people who knew Dylan Thomas, undertaken by Colin Edwards in the 1960’s. During one interview a woman confessed to not knowing what the word lesbian meant, mistaking it for a kind of omelette.
