A Collaborative Introduction to Translating Poetry

August 17, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm


This event is delivered in collaboration with The Burner, an Oxford art collective.

The workshop will serve as an introduction to translating poetry and as a forum to discuss poetry in translation. The workshop will be facilitated by writers with experience in translating poetry, although the workshop will be by no means an attempt to transmit this experience.

Instead, attendees and facilitators will attempt to answer together questions regarding the theory and practice of translation, while also working together on translating lines of poetry.

Attendees are more than welcome to draw from this experience and submit to the From Apples to Oranges zine that will be launched at the event Makaris in the Meadow on August 25th.

No prior experience in poetry translation is required, the event is free, and we’ll provide all the materials needed. But please do let us know you’re coming by booking a ticket at: https://fixr.co/event/workshop-a-collaborative-introduction-to-translati-tickets-462394307

The Community Works is an accessible and inclusive space but if you have specific needs please email us in advance on oxfordpoetrylibrary@gmail.com or via the contact form below.
