This is a great year to attend the American Literary Translators Association conference, for a number of reasons previously discussed on this blog. And six emerging translators will be attending as all-expenses-paid guests of ALTA, where they’ll be feted and invited to present their work to the general assembly. These are very competitive fellowships, so these are definitely translators to watch. The six fellows and the languages they translate from are:
Megan Berkobien (Catalan)
Alice Guthrie (Arabic)
Sara Novic (Bosnian/Croatian)
Christopher Tamigi (Italian)
Tenzin Dickyi (Tibetan)
Annie Tucker (Bahasa Indonesian)
You’ll find more information about each of the 2014 fellows on the ALTA website. Come to the conference so you can hear them read their work! There’s other reasons too. Hope to see you there.
