English PEN is delighted to announce that the latest round of PEN Translates is now open for submissions. PEN Translates helps UK publishers to meet the costs of translating new works into English – whilst ensuring translators are acknowledged and paid properly for their work. The grant is part of English PEN’s Writers in Translation programme, established in 2005 and supported by Bloomberg and Arts Council England to champion writers and books from around the world. The deadline for PEN Translates applications is Monday 7th December 2015. Please see the PEN Translates web page for further information and to apply.
The winners from the previous round of PEN Translates (which closed in June) will be announced in early November.
