“Translation in Motion”: open call for literary translation residencies

Translation in Motion is a RECIT's program that aims to enrich and intensify the flow of translated literature in contemporary Europe, and specifically between the Western Balkans countries and the EU member states. 

The residencies offer EU translators working from or into the languages of the Balkan countries (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Serbia) the opportunity to immerse themselves in the source language of their translation and carry out research, and to raise their visibility by networking with the local literary sector.

During their residency, translators are expected to work intensively on the literary translation project with which they applied for the program, to take part in events or activities of the host organization, and to network with colleagues and with other residents. The host organizations offer free accommodation in the residency center, a travel grant and a monthly fellowship to cover living expenses.

Translation in Motion Program is for the period from 06/2021-12/2021 in Arles (France), Belgrade (Serbia), Cetinje (Montenegro), Gotland (Sweden), Skopje (North Macedonia), Sofia (Bulgaria), Tirana (Albania), Ventspils (Latvia) and Norwich (UK).

You may apply until April 30, 2021. Find out more at RECIT’s web and Kokodril Engaging Words!
