This Programme provides a combination of skills in Literary Translation, Creative Writing, and Publishing. It is curated as a combination of online courses, offline workshops, and hands-on studios to help students acquire skills as literary translators, creative writers, and publishers. Being a postgraduate credential, the Diploma targets both regular students and those with some prior experience with writing or translating and felicity with the languages they work in. This two-semester programme is delivered online, with an in-person contact session each semester.

The Programme is designed under the leadership of Professor Tejaswini Niranjana, an eminent translator, winner of multiple translation awards like the Kendra Sahitya Akademi Award, State Sahitya Akademi Award, the DSC Prize for South Asian fiction, and the National Translation Award for Prose 2020 given by the American Literary Translators’ Association. It is supported by the JCB Literature Foundation which has instituted three full scholarships for the Programme.
