The British Council is launching a new International Publishing Fellowship Programme to connect publishing professionals in the UK and overseas
About the opportunity
Six publishing professionals from the UK will be paired with counterparts in Georgia, Turkey or Ukraine. They will have the opportunity to visit their opposite number on a curated study visit, to gain sector insight and forge professional connections from September 2019 – September 2020.
At the end of the Fellowship, Fellows will be invited to bid for a development fund of up to £3k each. This fund will enable them to continue forging international professional links.
We're looking for UK publishing professionals who: have 2-6 years' experience in the sector; work in trade fiction or non-fiction, across any genre.
This is a professional development activity opportunity aimed at individuals, not organisations. Individuals should apply in a personal capacity, with the consent of their employer.
How to apply
Please read the full Fellow profile, publishing sector briefs and FAQs before applying. When you're ready to apply to the Fellowship, please provide the following:
A brief covering letter
A completed application form.
A letter of support from your employer
Email these documents to firstname.lastname@example.org and include ‘Publishing Fellowship' in the email subject.
Deadline: 5pm on 6 September 2019.
