British Council Launches International Publishing Fellowship

Posted on August 5, 2019 in UK

The British Council is launching an International Publishing Fellowship, for publishing professionals with 2-6 years’ experience in the sector.

Six 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 £3,000 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.

Applications close on 5pm on Sept 6th 2019.
