Literature Across Frontiers

The Charles Wallace India Trust

Translation and Creative Writing Fellowship 2021/22
Residency opportunity for a literary translator-writer from India in Aberystwyth, Wales

Literature Across Frontiers is pleased to announce its 2021/22 Literary Translation and Creative Writing Fellowship, supported by the Charles Wallace India Trust, based at Literature Across Frontiers, University of Wales Trinity Saint David in Aberystwyth, Wales. Early-career practitioners of literary translation and creative writing in any genre, including prose, poetry and drama are invited to apply for the 2021 Fellowship with a proposal combining the two disciplines. The applicants must be Indian citizens resident in India. Preference will be given to applicants who have not had previous international opportunities and who work with one of the less widely spoken Indian languages. While their project will form the focus of their stay, we will also encourage the selected candidate to engage in academic, cultural and social life and to connect with the literary and arts scene across Wales.

The University of Wales Trinity Saint David is a multi-campus institution, and the Fellowship will be based at the Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS) next to the National Library of Wales, where LAF has an office.
