Training the Trainer

The Training the Trainer workshop strand will once again be available to apply for at the 2020 Summer School (19-25 July 2020). 

This workshop strand is for experienced literary translators that have published work and would like to receive some training in leading literary translation workshops. 4-6 places are available on this workshop strand. If you are successful in gaining a place, you will spend the summer school week shadowing our experienced workshop leaders. As well as shadowing the workshop leaders, you will have plenty of time to ask them questions about the process. We will also be running two dedicated workshops for the Training the Trainer cohort. These workshops will address specific techniques, ideas and challenges when leading literary translation workshops.

2019 programme can be downloaded here.

The same residential and non-residential packages apply for the Training the Trainer programme. £TBC residential and £TBC non-residential.
