The Mentorship Program of the American Literary Translators Association is entering its sixth year and now accepting applications. The program pairs an emerging translator with an experienced mentor for a project of the emerging translator’s choosing to be worked on for a year. The program includes both language-specific mentorships in Arabic, Catalan, poetry from Hong Kong, Korean prose, Korean poetry, and Russian prose, or non-language-specific mentorships in either poetry or prose. The 2020 mentorship cycle will run from February to November 2020.
