Translation workshop in poetry
The translation workshop in poetry offers literary translators — or those interested in becoming translators — the opportunity to explore the challenges and insights of translating work originally composed in another language, either the participant’s own work or the published work of an author the participant admires.
The workshop accommodates poetry translated from any language into English. Students will receive a reader composed of texts that explore the translation theory and techniques that will be discussed during the workshop.
During the conference, each student will be able to workshop several pieces of work in a traditional poetry workshop. Each writer should bring the original texts, word-for-word translations, and the versions of the translated poems they want feedback on. Their translated poems will be discussed in the workshop.
