Announcing the 2020 Virtual Travel Fellows
The winners of the 2020 Virtual Travel Fellowships, including the fifth annual Peter K. Jansen Memorial Travel Fellowship, are here! Normally there are 4-6 $1,000 fellowships to bring emerging (unpublished or minimally-published) translators to the ALTA conference. With the shift to a virtual conference this year, there are instead nine $500 fellowships, including two Peter K. Jansen Memorial Fellowships, to celebrate this year’s Virtual Travel Fellows at ALTA43.
ALTA celebrates this year’s Virtual Travel Fellows with a downloadable audio chapbook of the Fellows reading from their translations, introduced by 2009 Travel Fellow Robin Myers. This audio chapbook was released on Thursday, October 8 on ALTA’s Soundcloud page. This year’s winners were selected by judges David Ball, Bonnie Chau, and Tenzin Dickie.
