Jaipur BookMark 2016 brings you a catalogue of a select list of works on offer for translation from across 6 Indian languages.The catalogue will also be available online on the Jaipur Literature Festival website, and physical copies will be shared at Teamwork Arts literary events across the globe and will be available for digital, film and publication.
Jaipur BookMark also has planned to commission 8 works of literary fiction and non-fiction, which will be JBM’s unique contribution to the Indian literary scene. Currently, no other publishing platform in India offers the possibility of both getting to know India’s varied literatures, and making contact with publishers and authors from India’s many languages.
One of the aims of this initiative is to begin answering the question that publishers and agents from across the world often ask: How do we get to know Indian literatures? How can we translate between Indian languages, and from Indian languages into other languages of the world.
With its wealth of literatures in over 23 languages, India offers a rich landscape of writing and Jaipur BookMark is well placed to platform the best of such writing and to help facilitate the sale and exchange of rights both across Indian languages and internationally.
