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—and our first virtual conference last year saw a rise to 650 registrants, many of whom were attending ALTA for the first time.
Our 44th annual conference, “Inflection Points,” will take place jointly online and in person in 2021, offering sponsors the chance to double their impact and exposure to two different audiences. Our virtual conference will take place from October 15-17, and our in-person conference will be from November 11-13 in Tucson, AZ.
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.
Please contact ALTA Program Manager Kelsi Vanada to purchase an advertisement or leveled sponsorship.
The deadline for all leveled sponsorships is August 27, 2021.
