NEA Literature Translation Fellowships

FYI due Jan. 7
For more information visit

The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) encourages applications for Literature Translation Fellowships for projects that involve the specific translation of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English. Translations of writers and of work which are insufficiently represented in English translation are encouraged. All proposed projects must be for creative translations of published literary material into English. The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value. Priority will be given to projects that involve work that has not yet been translated into English. Grants are for $10,000 or $20,000, depending upon the artistic excellence and merit of the project.
