NEA International Literary Exchange: Description of Funding Opportunity The National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) is committed to funding innovative approaches that expand cross-cultural literary exchange. In 2006, a historic partnership between the Arts Endowment and Mexicos National Autonomous University resulted in the highly successful publication of two bilingual anthologies presenting poems by contemporary poets from each country. The NEA is now adapting this model for projects with other countries. This initiative, International Literary Exchanges: Contemporary Literary Anthologies, develops partnerships between the National Endowment for the Arts and foreign governments or their designees. The Arts Endowment makes a commitment to fund the publication of an anthology of the work of writers of the foreign country, and the partner country commits to publishing a corresponding anthology of the work of United States (U.S.) writers. Each country pays the fees of its own editors and acquires the publication rights of its own writers. Scope of Work The National Endowment for the Arts will support the publication of three literary anthologies featuring the work of writers from Mexico, Northern Ireland, and Pakistan. The purpose of this Program Solicitation is to select the Cooperator(s) that will work with the NEA on each countrys anthology project. Applicants should have a strong commitment to the publication of international literature. Prior experience publishing literature in translation is desirable, but not required. The NEA anticipates awarding a separate Cooperative Agreement for each anthology project. Organizations may apply for more than one project, but each project must be a separate application. Each anthology project has two components: 1) Publication in the U.S. of an anthology of foreign writers: The Cooperator will be responsible for: .Translation of the foreign work, if necessary. (A manuscript of the work selected for the anthology, in the native language, will be provided to the Cooperator by the NEA.) .Publication and distribution of the anthology in the U.S. .Outreach activities to accompany the publication. The Cooperator will work closely with the NEA Project Director who will: .Obtain the manuscripts, acknowledgments, and rights for the literary work from the partner country. .Approve all items submitted by the Cooperator to the NEA as detailed in the Delivery Schedule for each countrys anthology. .Assist in planning promotional activities including the launch event in Washington, D.C. and events in other U.S. cities. 2) Publication in the partner country of an anthology of U.S. writers: The Cooperator will be responsible for: .Paying fees to the U.S. editor identified by the NEA (for the Northern Ireland and Pakistan anthologies only). .Paying for the acquisition of rights to publish the selected work of U.S. writers according to arrangements made by the NEA. (The publication costs will be born by the foreign partner.) The NEA Project Director will: .Provide the documentation necessary for the Cooperator to issue payments to the U.S. editor and writers.
