The Vartanush Krikorian Fund for contemporary Armenian Literary Creation
The Fund includes a translation grant whose goal is to promote on an international level Armenian fiction with a contemporary social and/or political resonance in Armenia.
To do so, we will:
select the works of authors of recent Armenian fiction, which meet the above criteria;
ensure translation into French of the selected works;
facilitate the publication and dissemination of the said works in partnership with a translator.
In addition, this Fund intends to be deployed in other areas that promote the vitality of literary creation in the Armenian language: in the short term with the establishment of creative writing workshops in Armenian (in addition to translation support); in the long term with the establishment of a Literary Prize and a writers' residency.
Additional information will soon be available.
