To celebrate the life and work of poet and translator Edwin Morgan, Creative Scotland is funding a free place on the six-week SUISS ‘Text and Context: British and Irish Literature from 1900 to the Present’ course from 8 July to 17 August 2013. The Fellowship will take place in Edinburgh, and will cover the cost of all tuition, accommodation, most meals, the social and cultural programme, and full use of the facilities at the University of Edinburgh’s library and the National Library of Scotland.
The Fellowship does not include travel expenses or spending money. In the past, winners have given a one-hour translation seminar to SUISS students interested in translation. Applications for this Fellowship are invited from professional translators with an interest in 20th century and contemporary Scottish writing. Students are not eligible to apply for this scholarship.
The closing date for applications is 26 April 2013.
Further information can be found on the SUISS website (http://www NULL.summer-school NULL.hss NULL.ed NULL.ac NULL.uk/suiss/), which also contains the facility to download an application form. A brochure, application form and credit information can also be obtained from:
