FILI’s Translators-in-Residence programme

Contrary to previously announced, the application period for FILI’s annual Translators-in-Residence programme will begin in autumn 2016. We are unfortunately unable to get the residence at Suomenlinna next year, and we will not receive confirmation of a replacement residence until the beginning of the autumn.

According to our tentative schedule, the application period will begin in September 2016.

The residence will last for three weeks in March 2017. As in previous years, the new residence will be located in Helsinki.

London Book Fair 12.–14.4.2016

Come and meet us in section 6 F 70!

Bologna Children’s Book Fair 4.–7.4.2016
