In Other Words – calling all editors
BookTrust are thrilled to be partnering with award-winning translator and “In Other Words” judge Daniel Hahn for a new phase of their translation project.
As you may have already seen in The Bookseller or via a press release, eight editors will have the opportunity to attend Bologna Children’s Book Fair in April 2019 to scout for foreign-language books.
This opportunity is open to any editor (junior or senior) who works in children’s and YA publishing and wouldn’t otherwise be going to Bologna. You can read more about it here:
To apply to take part in the initiative, editors must submit an expression of interest of no more than 400 words outlining:
- why they would like to be a part of the scheme
- how they might benefit from it
- and what sort of work they might be looking for at the fair.
All applications should be emailed by Monday 19th November to Daniel Hahn at firstname.lastname@example.org
The International Board on Books for Young People is a unique international alliance of everyone interested in children’s literature: academics, librarians, writers, illustrators, publishers, teachers, literacy workers, booksellers, parents and others.
