Issue 1: Literatures of the languages of India

Six samples representing four of the languages of India – Bangla, Hindi, Kannada and Gujarati – have been selected for the inaugural round of PEN Presents, in partnership with the British Council.

The six winners were chosen from a shortlist of 12 translators, who were awarded grants to create samples of their proposed works, and have received editorial support from English PEN.
