Collaborative Translation Workshop at Manchester Poetry Library

19th March 13:00 to 15:00
Join award-winning visiting translator and poet duo, Peter Constantine and Eleni Kefala, for an engaging collaborative translation workshop.

All welcome: no language or translation experience required.

Join award-winning visiting translator and poet duo, Peter Constantine and Eleni Kefala, for a fun, engaging collaborative translation workshop.

The visiting translator will provide a ‘crib’, or basic word-for-word translation of a poem by the visiting poet, after which we’ll form groups tasked with teasing out different wordings and phrasings for the translation. From these different versions, we’ll collaboratively create a single translation with guidance from the visiting translator. Join us!
