2019 programme - View last year's programme to get 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 a variety of plenary sessions on topics that we feel will be of interest to practicing literary translators. These will include a Publishers Panel chaired by the renowned editor Bill Swainson and an Authors' Panel with our four Summer School authors. For our online Summer School we will also be introducing daily short talks on hot topics.
