Founded in 1978, the American Literary Translators Association provides support, advocacy, resources, and community to over 900 members, and our annual conference—the only regular conference in the United States focused entirely on literary translation—is our signature event. ALTA’s in-person conferences bring nearly 500 people from all over the world to participate in sessions on literature in translation and the art of translating, and to enjoy readings of new works in translation.
We’ve moved our 43rd annual conference, “In Between,” online in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our decision was a difficult one, but we also know that a virtual platform will allow for new possibilities, including reaching more attendees around the world. Our conference will kick off on International Translation Day, September 30, and we’ll share programming throughout the subsequent two weeks, building toward a final weekend full of live sessions and networking opportunities on October 17-18.
Advertising in the digital conference program brochure, ensuring your name or logo is visible to both potential and registered attendees, or becoming a conference sponsor are great ways to promote your press, magazine, university program, organization, or service to translators, authors, editors, publishers, teachers, students, and others working in literary translation and international literature.
The deadline for all leveled sponsorships is August 28, 2020.
