BCLT organises a range of activities which promote literary translation in the wider community.
For example, Duncan Large organised a workshop on Bible translations at Norwich Cathedral and a Bible Translation masterclass at London Review Bookshop. If you would like to work with BCLT on an event involving literary translation, please get in touch.
Creative Translation in Schools Programme
BCLT and National Centre for Writing are working with Queens College Translation Exchange, to run a Creative Translation in Schools programme in local Norfolk schools. The focus of the programme is on bringing current UEA students from the School of Literature, Drama and Creative Writing and the School of Languages together with teachers and pupils from local schools for translation workshops. With an emphasis on translation as a creative, inspiring, and aspiration-raising activity, these workshops channel the students’ expertise in translation and enthusiasm for language-learning and literature into enriching literary experiences for young people from primary age upwards.
