DISCOVER - New writing from Turkey and the UK
Open call for emerging short story writers... read on to find out how you can be part of a new project showcasing Turkish and British short story writers. The British Council in Turkey aims to build a bridge between Turkish and UK writers, facilitate dialogue between literary professionals in both countries, and create a platform to bring works by Turkish and British writers to new audiences. British Council is launching a short story competition, on the theme of ‘diversity’, in partnership with two literary institutions: ITEF - Istanbul Tanpınar Literature Festival in Turkey, and Word Factory in the UK. Winning stories will be published on a new British Council digital platform, alongside newly commissioned stories by established authors from Turkey and the UK. All the stories will be translated into the other language (English/Turkish).
