Young Poets Network Poetry in Translation workshop with Clare Pollard

14th August 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

Have you ever translated a poem? This summer, The Poetry Society’s Young Poets Network has teamed up with Modern Poetry in Translation to challenge young writers worldwide to try their hand at translating poetry.

Find out more about the challenge here. As part of this partnership we’re delighted to offer writers aged 14-25 a free poetry translation workshop with Clare Pollard, editor of MPT. You’ll work together to create a group translation of a poem in a different language, guided by Clare.

Absolutely no experience of translation or knowledge of other languages is necessary as we’ll be working from a ‘bridge’ English translation. This is a great opportunity for anyone interested in translation, language(s), and poetry generally to gain some hands-on experience translating poetry.

Email educationadmin@poetrysociety.org.uk with a completed form to book your place. Spaces will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
