Apply for the 2018 Summer School

Applications for our language workshops are now CLOSED.

However we are taking applications for a place on the Training the Trainer workshop strand. This place will be funded on a full residential basis by the AHRC Open World Research Initiative Cross-Language Dynamics: Reshaping Communities. 

The Training the Trainer workshop strand is for mid-career literary translators to learn from the current workshop leaders at the summer school, as well as UEA academics, about running literary translation workshops. The small group will be able to shadow some of the workshop leaders and also have dedicated sessions on how to facilitate workshops. The OWRI research project has funding to support a mid-career literary translator from Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian, Macedonian, Montenegrin or Bosnian. If you are interested in attending the International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School on the Training the Trainer workshop strand please apply by:
