ALTA 2015 Travel Fellowships
OK, now that we have the ALTA 2015 location set (Tucson), the dates (October 28-31), hotel (Marriott University Park), and keynote speakers (Stephen Snyder and Jerome Rothenberg), it’s time to send out the call for Travel Fellowships.
Each year, between four and six $1,000 fellowships are awarded to emerging (unpublished or minimally published) translators to help them pay for hotel and travel expenses to the annual ALTA conference.
At the conference, ALTA Fellows are invited to read their translated work at a keynote event, giving them an opportunity to present their translations to an audience of translators, authors, editors, and publishers from around the world.
Applications must be submitted through our applications portal by June 1, 2015.
Applications must include:
a cover letter explaining your interest in attending the conference
current CV / resumé
up to 10 pages of translated work (poetry or prose, double spaced)
the corresponding original language text
Geoffrey Brock, Jennifer Croft, and Sidney Wade are judging this year. So, good luck! Get your applications in. (And I’m talking about YOU, my students and former students. ROCHESTER REPRESENT.)
