About CELA poject

CELA offers a European context to a new generation of literary creators. The project allows intensive cooperation between European writers, translators and literary professionals with talent in the early stages of their professional career. They have the opportunity to work together on an international scale and present themselves to the European public. CELA offers lower-spread languages ​​a greater opportunity to improve the sound of continental voices in a choir dominated by great singers.

CELA offers participants a four-year training itinerary, tools and a network of contacts in order to facilitate an international career and build a combined professional practice for selected talents. Focusing on capacity building and transnational mobility, we specifically integrate digital opportunities for literature, new ways of generating income and the labor insertion of participants.

The second edition of the talent development program begins in September 2019 and will last until September 2023. In the first years, innovative organizations will jointly select and guide authors, translators and literary professionals, and offer them a training and education program. The program offers the target groups the capabilities, the international network and the necessary materials for the following years: their presentation in the European literary market.

In 2022 and 2023, participants will be presented through international marketing and advertising campaigns, a European tour of festivals and the connection with renowned writers (ambassadors) and literary organizations. With their participation in this project, literary talents will gain access to countless professionals in the publishing industry, such as translators, agents, publishers, event organizers, university professors of literature, ambassadors and official entities, private sector programmers and the public. We will increase the number of contracts for literary creators and the ability of participants to make an international career, as our methods at the national level have demonstrated.
