The ALTA Emerging Translator Mentorship Program is designed to establish and facilitate a close working relationship between an experienced translator and an emerging translator on a project selected by the emerging translator. The mentorship duration is approximately nine months. The emerging translator is expected to choose a project that can be completed in that time, and they will only be advised on that particular project. ALTA’s Emerging Translator Mentorship Program was founded by former ALTA board member Allison M. Charette. Application Deadline: 11:59 pm PT, November 30, 2020.
Emerging translators have the opportunity to work on Russian prose with Marian Schwartz, a renowned and award-winning translator. She is highly regarded for her translation of Anna Karenina, and she has also spoken at CREECA events in the past!
