Sunday Submissions: Four ALTA Awards

The 2018 American Literary Translations Association (ALTA) awards are now open:

In particular, the following four prizes are now accepting submissions:

The first two prizes are for publishers submitting translated works of prose that were brought out in 2017. The third is for book-length manuscripts, 48 pages – 80 pages, written by a single author and translated into English. It includes a $1,000 prize and publication by White Pine Press.

The fourth is for funds to help emerging translators attend the 2018 ALTA conference, set for October 31 – November 3, 2018, in Bloomington, Indiana.

ALTA only accepts submissions through their Submittable portal, and the deadline for awards submissions is April 16, 2018, at 11:59pm EST.

The American Literary Translators Association will officially award these prizes at their annual conference, ALTA41: Performance, Props, and Platforms, in Bloomington, Indiana.
