Translators programme at Lillehammer 23 – 26 May 2023

As in previous years, NORLA would like to invite translators of Norwegian literature to Lillehammer in connection with the Norwegian Festival of Literature. For up to ten participants, NORLA will cover travel expences, board and lodging from Tuesday 23 until Friday 26 May. It is possible to extend the stay at your own expense.

The participants will be able to take part in the festival’s rich programme at their own leasure. They are also invited to participate in program events of our international  fellowship program: introductions to outstanding children’s and young adults authors and illustrators from Norway, plus an introduction to Norwegian children’s literature and book industry. We are also invite our participants to a kick-off for Norway as Guest of Honour at Bologna Book Fair in 2026.
Translators may also have meetings with literary agents in the Rights Centre at the hotel. The Rights Centre is a collaboration with the Norwegian Festival of Literature in Lillehammer.

The scheme can only be applied for by those who translate directly from Norwegian.
