Big news! SCBWI has opened the Work-In-Progress grant program to translators. Starting in 2019, SCBWI member translators can follow the instructions below to submit to the WIP Translation category. Tell the world!

https://www.scbwi.org/awards/grants/work-in-progress-grants/
https://www.scbwi.org/wip-frequently-asked-questions/

This new grant category is the result of efforts by International Regional Advisor Chairperson Kathleen Ahrens and by Board of Advisors Co-Chair Christopher Cheng, as well as SCBWI founders Stephen Mooser and Lin Oliver, in recognition of membership and participation in SCBWI by translators.

Deepest thanks to all!

Note: Translators should apply in the Translation category of the WIP. Submit a translation into English of a text that fits one of the following categories: Picture Book, Chapter Books/Early Readers, Middle Grade, Young Adult Fiction, Nonfiction. As part of your cover page/synopsis, identify the text’s category. In addition, give its genre, original author and language, original publisher and publication date (if published), and rights status (if known). Please also describe why this text needs to be translated into English now. What is its relevance for the market?

Submissions must follow the guidelines linked above. Submissions will be accepted March 1 – March 31, Midnight PDT 2019.

Much gratitude, and happy translating!

A clarification for anyone  who may be wondering:

https://www.scbwi.org/awards/grants/work-in-progress-grants/
Despite the word "completed" here, where it says to send in "The first 10 pages (US letter size) of your completed manuscript"—translators, you need not have translated the full book on spec. All you need to, or can, submit is 10 pages. This language was in place before the WIP Translation category was created and applies more to writers. Thanks.
