PEN Translation Fund

The PEN American Center just announced the recipients of its 2010 Translation Fund grants. The projects selected include plays, short fiction and poetry, and represent languages ranging from Urdu, Turkish and Greek to German and Yorùbá. Sadly, there isn’t a single translation from Spanish on the list – but PEN has a solid history of supporting both Spanish and Latin American lit, so we’ll cut them a break. So far, most of the funded translations are still available for acquisition (hint hint, independent publishers).

The full list of supported projects, along with a brief description of each, can be found on the PEN website.
