RARA-AVIS: Literary Translation at The Banff Centre

From: Karin Montin ( kmontin@sympatico.ca)
Date: 26 Nov 2004

As there are many published authors and a number of translators on this list, I hope no one will mind my forwarding this notice. I should have done it weeks ago, because the deadline is creeping up. (Anyway, there's always next year.) The program offers an opportunity for translators to spend three weeks in a fantastic setting and even to get together with their authors there.

Tapani's comment about hoping to translate Ken Bruen reminded me about this program. Unfortunately that particular combination would not be eligible, as either the translator has to be from Canada, the U.S. or Mexico, or the author has to be from the Americas. That still leaves a lot of scope.

Call for Applications June 12 - July 2, 2005 Application deadline: December 17, 2004 Director: Linda Gaboriau
"Translation, like writing, is both art and craft. With a touch of alchemy. When translator and author actually get to meet, the result can be inspired. Nuance is what translates language into art. There is no substitute for the direct connection that Banff provides."

~ Ann-Marie MacDonald
