The Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Armenia has launched the program “Armenian Literature in Translation” for foreign Publishing Houses that are interested in translating and publishing Armenian literature.
This program seeks to ensure that the best of Armenian prose, poetry, drama, journalism and children’s literature can be enjoyed by readers around the world.
Any foreign publisher who is a legal entity and has worked with foreign authors in the past can apply for this grant, which can provide financial support to fund translation expenses.
Through this grant, the Grant Program aims to support foreign companies publishing Armenian literature, and seeks to boost the interest of foreign publishers in Armenian literature and its translations in different languages.
A Selection Committee will select the works to be translated from among those presented, and will allocate a certain amount of money to each piece, based on its specific characteristics. The Committee will meet in May and October. Applicants will be informed of the results no later than 1 month after the Committee’s decision.
