Writers in Translation news from English PEN: April 2017

Writers in Translation News

April 2017

Welcome to April! As usual, we have translation news and a selection of great event recommendations (this time: festivals!) focusing on international literature. We also have news from the WiT programme: the PEN Translates grant is open for applications, and we have an exciting shortlist of six books from East and Southeast Asia for you.

If you would like to share translation news (events, stories, opportunities) through this bulletin, please write to theodora@englishpen.org.

GRANTS, GRANTS, GRANTS

PEN Translates is once again open for submissions. The grant helps UK publishers to meet the costs of translating new works into English. Find out more and send us your applications. The deadline is 22 May.

After a great first round focusing on Europe, PEN Presents is back. We’ve asked translators to pitch books that haven’t been translated into English – yet! This time, we give you… East and Southeast Asia. We’ve got magical realism from Taiwan, a sci-fi love story and an exploration of recent history via art restoration from South Korea, short stories focusing on the female experience from Malaysia, a funny novel about death from Japan, and queer poetry from Indonesia. Sounds good? We think so. Read all about it in our catalogue, keep an eye out for a special feature in the spring issue of the Asia Literary Review, and mark your diary for our event at the Free Word Centre in June.

We have published a report on our PEN Promotes grant & promoting literature in translation. Take a look here.
