Residency Opportunity for Translator-Writers from India

Literature Across Frontiers is pleased to launch a Translation and Creative Writing Fellowship, supported by the Charles Wallace India Trust, for literary practitioners from India who combine the discipline of literary translation and writing. Translators who also write in any genre including prose, poetry, drama, essay and non-fiction or writers who are also practicing translators are invited to apply for the 2016 Fellowship. In 2016 we are offering one Fellowship, and the successful applicant will be given the opportunity to spend three months at Aberystwyth University in Wales in the autumn working on a literary project of their choice combining translation and writing. While their project will form the focus of their stay with us, we also encourage Fellows to engage in the academic, cultural and social life of the faculty.

Applications close on 29th of April 2016 and are open to Indian citizens resident in India who are both writers and translators.
