Heads-up, emerging translators! It’s time to send in your application for one of the coveted $1000 travel fellowships to attend the American Literary Translators Association conference, one of the best things you can do to jump-start your career. Typically 4-5 fellowships are granted each year, and this year an additional one has been added, the Peter K. Jansen Memorial Travel Fellowship (earmarked for an emerging translator of color and/or a translator working from a diaspora or stateless language), so the odds just went up.
