Cash and Prizes: How Grants and Awards Contribute to a Sustainable U.S. Literary Culture

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The PEN America literary awards, the PEN/Heim Translation Fund; the ALTA translation awards, prize and travel fellowships; the Best Translated Book Award; the NEA Literature Fellowships and Art Works grants: Besides rewarding and bestowing recognition on individual translators for excellence and achievement, how do these honors help support the healthy literary ecosystem that is essential for us to continue translating and publishing literary translations in the United States? Or do they? Are they sufficient? Do they work the way they should? How do they compare to analogous programs in other countries? Do we need more of them?
