2011 Translation Fellowship

Founded in 2009, the Zoland Poetry/VSC Fellowships provide two annual residencies, one for a poet and one for a translator. The establishment of these ongoing fellowships has allowed each organization ( to open up new creative opportunities, while providing valuable time for writers to focus on individual projects.

Prior to 2009, VSC accepted 12 writers per month for poetry, fiction, and non-fiction residencies; since then, fellowships are being made available for translators and international writers as well. Translators and international poets and writers are now a regular part of the writing community at VSC thanks in part to the Zoland Fellowship, as well as other targeted international fellowship awards.
