Hello, this message is from Jessie Dickey, secretary of the American Literary Translators Association (ALTA). From time to time I will be passing along bits and pieces of information which I hope will be of interest to translators and non-translators alike. The following are a couple of such items:

Item No. 1:
29th Annual ALTA Conference
Bellevue, Washington
October 18-21, 2006

Item No. 2:
ALTA Travel Fellowship Award
The ALTA Travel Fellowship Award is for beginning (unpublished or lightly published) translators. We offer fellowships for travel to the annual ALTA Conference held each autumn, which features an event of readings by the invited fellows. If you would like to apply for an ALTA Travel Fellowship, send a cover letter stating your desire to attend the conference, a CV, and no more than ten double-spaced pages of translation (translation into English), accompanied by the original text, to:
Jessie Dickey
ALTA Travel Fellowship Award
c/o The University of Texas at Dallas
P. O. Box 830688 – JO51
Richardson, TX 75083-0688
The deadline to apply for a travel fellowship is May 15, 2006.

Thanks, until next time.
