It’s February, which means it’s time to remind you, as I do every year, to apply to spend three weeks next June translating and talking about translation in Banff in the Canadian Rockies, one of the most spectacularly beautiful spots on earth. If you’ve read enough, just click over to the application form and get to work. If you want to read more about the Banff International Literary Translation Centre, I’ve written more about the place before. Or you can consult the website for more information. It’s a wonderful place to work (and hike when you’re done for the day), and the structure of the program allows for an ideal mixture of private work time and chances to interact with other translators and writers. The program is directed by Katherine Silver, who is seriously brilliant, as anyone who attended her “Debunking the Myth of the Literal” panel at ALTA 2014 can testify. Scholarships and travel stipends are available. The deadline this year is Feb. 18, so get to it!
