Ireland Literature Exchange/Idirmhalartán Litríocht Éireann (ILE), in association with the Ulster Bank Theatre Festival and the Department of Tourism, Culture and Sport, invites applications from literary translators from Poland who are working on the translation of a work of contemporary Irish poetry and wish to spend a period of up to three consecutive weeks in Ireland during the period 26th September to 17th October 2010.

The bursary is open to experienced literary translators from Poland who:

2. are engaged in the translation of a work of Irish poetry
3. have secured a publisher's contract for the work in question or will have secured one at the time of residency.

Applications are welcome from translators translating from English to Polish.
