Summer School Programme

DETAILS OF THE 2020 PROGRAMME WILL BE AVAILABLE TOWARDS THE END OF 2019.

 

2019 programme - this will give you an idea of how the week works. 

 

Each participant takes part in a particular workshop strand and stays with this group for all of the literary translation workshops. You will then get to take part in two creative writing sessions to give you some time to explore your creativity - with some expert guidance of course! We also programme three plenary sessions on topics that we feel will be of interest to practicing literary translators. in 2019 the remarkable Kate Briggs gave the first plenary of the week. This was followed by a panel chaired by Rosie Goldsmith on the journey of a translated novel, with our Italian workshop author, Elvira Dones, her translator Clarissa Botsford and her publisher Stefan Tobler (And Other Stories). Our final plenary session was a publishers' panel, chaired by renowned editor Bill Swainson.
