About the opportunity

Six publishing professionals from Turkey, Ukraine and Georgia (two from each) will be paired with counterparts from the UK. They will have the opportunity to visit their opposites on a curated study visit, to gain sector insight and forge professional connections from September 2019 – September 2020.

Development Fund

At the end of the Fellowship, Fellows will be invited to bid for a development fund of up to £3k each. This fund will enable them to continue forging international professional links.

We’re looking for publishing professionals from Turkey 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.

  • A brief covering letter
  • A completed application form.
  • A letter of support from your employer

Email these documents to su.basbugu@britishcouncil.org.tr and include ‘Publishing Fellowship’ in the email subject.

Deadline: 17.00 Turkey time on 6 September 2019.
