Making Translations Happen: Grants, Residencies and Retreats

The London Book Fair, 2018

Support from cultural organisations and private funds can be vital to allow translators the time and space they need to work on texts that might not otherwise be published. What support is available, and what might be the best fit for different projects? How much effort is involved in applying for funding, residencies and retreats, and how can translators give their applications the best chance of success? What else can the sector (and translators themselves) do to support new voices and make translations happen?

Other speakers include Kate Griffin, Daniel Hahn and Tessa Lewis.
