Programa Sur: Call for Applications

The Embassy of Argentine Republic is relaunching its ‘Programa Sur’ project run from the Argentine Ministry of Foreign affairs in order to promote the literary work of Argentine writers by providing grants for the translation of their work.

2014 celebrates the 100th year anniversary of Julio Corátzar and Adolfo Bioy Casares and as a tribute to their contribution to the literary world, the Ministry would like to encourage the publication of an edition of an anthology of their work in addition to the inclusion of other prolific and noteworthy Argentine writers who would also appeal to the mass market.

Applications for the translation grants are now open and candidates will have until 30 September to apply. For more information about ‘Programa Sur’, go to
