Who is this Call For?  

This call for applications is open to literary translators, aged 18+, active in the field of literature, of all educational qualifications and levels of experience, legally residing in a Creative Europe country, (individuals or groups up to 5 people).

  • International collaboration: for example, with an author in the framework of a literary translation.
  • Production oriented residencies: for example, the result of your mobility is the immersion in a specific 'source language context', in the framework of a literary translation.
  • Professional development: for example, you will take part in network meetings, showcases, workshops, master classes and other types of training outside of formal education.

What does it support? 

  • i-Portunus provides financial support to partially fund the cost of travel (transport, accommodation etc.) to another (or several) Creative Europe country(/ies).
  • The duration of the mobility must be between 7 and 60 days and must take place before 30 November 2021.
