Cove Park Translation Week

Founded in 1999, Cove Park creates year­‐round funded and self-funded residencies across all art forms for national and international artists, collaborative groups and organisations. Cove Park is located on an outstanding 50-acre site over looking Loch Long on Scotland's west coast (about 60 minutes from Glasgow by road or rail).

On 11-18 November 2019 Cove Park is holding its Translation Week, in partnership with the National Centre for Writing. Translation Week brings together a group of up to 7 literary translators working into English for a week-­long residency (alongside two translators working out of English). During the day, participating translators will have time to focus on their own translation projects. In the evenings, there will be opportunities to discuss work in progress with their peers and share any translation challenges they face. All translators will be offered self-catering accommodation free of charge and £150 towards the cost of travel and living expenses.

Cove Park welcomes applications for residency from translators working from any language into English. In 2019, supported by a Language Acts and Worldmaking Small Grant, it is able to reserve one spot for a drama translator and another for an L2 translator (working into their second language). All those wishing to apply should be available for the duration of the residency.

For further information and to apply, please see the Cove Park website, including the guidelines. The deadline for application is Sunday 18 August 2019.
