The Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowships

2014-09-13 10.30.44The Wheeler Centre Hot Desk Fellowships, sponsored by the Readings Foundation, offer support to emerging writers across all genres, as well as a place to work for two months. Louis Bravos, a sessional tutor in Japanese and Translation, has been chosen as one of the 2014 fellows, affording him an opportunity to work on his translation of Yukio Mishima’s novel Kyoko no Ie. The novel – one of only two of Mishima’s novels yet to be translated into English – is a complex, unsettling novel by one of the most controversial figures in Japanese literature. Set in Tokyo and New York in the 1950s, it is both international and intensely personal. Louis will begin his fellowship on September 29th.
