Through fellowships to published translators, the Arts Endowment supports projects for the translation of specific works of prose, poetry, or drama from other languages into English. The Arts Endowment encourages translations of writers and of work that are not well represented in English translation. All proposed projects must be for creative translations of published literary material into English. The work to be translated should be of interest for its literary excellence and value. Priority will be given to projects that involve work that has not yet been translated into English.
Anticipated Deadline: Jan. 7, 2012 (announcement expected in late Oct. 2011)
The TMC Composition Program balances intensive on-site writing projects with classes, seminars, and discussions led by distinguished composers from a wide range of aesthetic perspectives. Composers will each have at least three performances of their works during the summer: two or more of which will be works written on-site. Each Composition Fellow will have one previously composed acoustic chamber work performed during the season on a regular TMC concert. As part of their application materials, composers should include at least one work which they would like to have performed at the center, suitable for performance by TMC forces. The on-site projects involve producing work quickly in order to experiment, develop specific (perhaps unfamiliar) skills, and to foster close collaborations with TMC performers. Inter-Arts initiatives often form one such project; others have included writing in less familiar musical genres or for under-utilized instruments, or writing for an ensemble consisting of the composers themselves.
Deadline Jan. 15, 2012 (anticipated)
