Founded by Daniel Hahn in 2010, the translation mentoring programme of Writer´s Centre Norwich aims to develop successive new cohorts of literary translators into English, particularly for languages whose literature is currently under-represented in English translation.
The scheme matches up experienced translators with emerging translators for a six-month period during which they work together on practical translation projects, developing their craft through working on a chosen text or texts. The mentor acts as an adviser to the mentee on aspects of life as a professional translator, such as time management, meeting deadlines, managing finances and understanding contracts, and as an advocate for their mentee with publishers in search of literary translators.
Emerging translators are invited to apply for the 2017 WCN Emerging Translator Mentorship Programme. Mentees will receive six months of mentoring, a £500 bursary and access to various (UK) industry events such as International Translation Day and London Book Fair, where a showcase event will also be arranged.
Deadline: 28 July 2017
