Call for Stories -New Anthology to be published

Call for Stories -New Anthology to be published

In More Words: Interpreters' Stories
Are you an interpreter and do you have a story to tell?
Mothertongue is publishing a new anthology of interpreters' stories in Autumn 2017, with funding from Awards for All.

We are looking for stories from people who may be experienced story tellers or people who have never tried to write before. We are not looking for perfectly finished pieces but stories that need to be heard. You can write in English – it doesn't need to be perfect as our highly experienced professional editor will work with you to get it to publishable standard if your story is selected. Stories will be selected on the basis of their interest, engagement and their ability to convey the reality of the interpreter experience. You can write in any language you like if you are able to supply us with the translation into English too.
Don't put it off. Your stories need to be heard if the challenges, achievements and acute needs for interpreted communication are to be understood and appreciated more widely. Why not write something today?
