Be part of the future of poetry translation.

In September the Poetry Translation Centre will be running Translating Poetries: A Symposium for Translation Practitioners. This event will gather 50 leading translation practitioners from around the world to discuss the practice of translating poetry. They are currently seeking poetry translators from a wide range of backgrounds to take part.

The symposium will take place over two full days. There will be short panel presentations and a good deal of open discussion. Sessions are likely to include: translating responsibly from different cultures, translating endangered languages, the specific challenges of translating oral poetry and deciding who and what to translate.

The symposium will open with a keynote talk by poet and translator Mamta Sagar (India), and close with an in-conversation event featuring poet Abdilatif Abdalla (Kenya) and leading Swahili translator Annmarie Drury (USA). This event is supported by Commonwealth Writers, Literature Across Frontiers and the National Centre for Writing.

If you are interested in being a participant the PTC is now open to expressions of interest. Find out more here.
