International Literary Translation & Creative Writing Summer School - 23-29 July 2017

International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School

23 - 29 July 2017 at University of East Anglia, Norwich, UK

Delivered by the British Centre for Literary Translation in partnership with Writers' Centre Norwich

The Summer School brings together writers and translators for an intensive, one-week, residential programme of hands-on translation and creative writing practice.

For language-specific workshops, groups work on a collaborative translation with the author in residence and workshop leader.

For translators working from any other languages there are two multilingual workshops, one for poetry and one for prose. These are designed for translators working from any language into English.

All workshops are designed to encourage collaboration and peer learning in a small group setting.

Confirmed workshops available in 2017:

Bengali to English workshop - Led by Arunava Sinha with writer Sirsho Bandopadhyay
English to Spanish workshop - Led by Lucila Cordone with writer Giles Foden
