Seren Publisher Takes Up European Schwob Fellowship

Congratulations to Seren publisher Mick Felton for being awarded a Schwob Fellowship. Last month he attended a meeting of 7 European & 1 Finnish publishers at which Welsh classics were pitched with a view to selling translation rights. The project is run by the The Dutch Foundation for Literature for which it recently received E20,000.

Schwob titles are tagged 'exceptional but hard to find or undiscovered modern classics that whet the appetite.' Already the Polish Book Institute is cooperating to find a publisher for Marta Klonowska's Polish translation by of Un Nos Ola Leuad (One Moonlight Night) by Caradoc Prichard (my favourite Welsh-language book). Emyr Humphreys' A Toy Epic has also been selected under the Schwob scheme as a European 'must-read'.
