International Literary Translation & Creative Writing Summer School

The International Literary Translation & Creative Writing Summer School 2021 will take place ONLINE (19-23 July 2021). Applications for the 2021 Summer School will open in January 2021. 

 

The online Summer School includes many of our regular activities plus a few different sessions unique to the new online format:

  • Language-specific workshop strands (languages to be announced later this year)
  • Multilingual workshop strands for those translating from any language into English
  • Training the Trainer workshop strand for more experienced translators who are interested in running literary translation workshops in their home country 
  • All workshops are designed to encourage collaboration and peer learning in a small group setting (maximum of 10 translators in a group).
  • Creative Writing workshops
  • Author and translator readings
  • Plenary panels with industry professionals
  • Short talks on hot topics
  • Optional online evening social events

 

The plenary sessions and short talks from the 2020 Summer School are now available to watch on our YouTube Channel.
