FILI PROGRAMME FOR TRANSLATORS OF FINLAND-SWEDISH LITERATURE
You can now apply for a Translator-in-Residence Programme that we have in cooperation with FILI - Finnish Literature Exchange. FILI organises an annual Translator-in-Residence Programme in Villa Salin, Helsinki. Our guests, connected to this programme, will stay at our Satama House in Ekenäs.
The application period is from 2.11 - 15.12.2022. All applicants will be informed on 22.12.2022.
The residency is open to literary translators of Finland-Swedish literature living outside Finland who have a book translation in progress.
The Translator-in-Residence Programme includes accommodation, a stipend (300€) and partial reimbursement of travel costs*. It is open to applications for translators who:
• live outside Finland
• translate literature from the Finland-Swedish language into their own mother tongue
• are working on a translation of a fiction or non-fiction book to be published
The residency takes place from 27.2. - 19.3.2023 (NB! The period at Satama House can be extended for up to 3 months maximum, if required). There is only space for 1 translator or a couple at a time.
The translators from Finland-Swedish selected for a stipend at our Satama House will be connected (for exchange) to the 5-6 translators who are staying at Villa Salin, located in Helsinki’s Lauttasaari district. Further opportunities for exchange can be explored (such as with the Goethe Institute in Helsinki).
*Up to 150€ from Nordic and Baltic countries, up to 350€ from other European countries and up to 700€ for all other countries.
