To celebrate the life and work of the translator, poet and academic, Edwin Morgan, Creative  Scotland is funding two free places on the six week Text and Context course at the Scottish Universities’ International Summer School to two professional translators with an interest in twentieth-century and contemporary Scottish writing. This fellowship will foster collaboration between translators with the aim of promoting Scottish Literature, in particular, to an international audience.

The courses take place during the 10 July – 19 August 2017 at the University of Edinburgh, and will cover the cost of all tuition, standard 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.

Please note the Fellowship does not include travel expenses or spending money. Recipients are asked to give 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.

Further information can be found on the SUISS website (http://www NULL.suiss NULL.ed NULL.ac NULL.uk), which also contains the facility to download an application form. The closing date for applications is 27 March 2017.

Please direct any questions to the Administrative Manager at suiss@ed.ac.uk (suiss null@null ed NULL.ac NULL.uk)
