Deadline: April 17, 2020
Warwick Translates is the first literary translation summer school to be held at the University of Warwick. It offers the opportunity to translate texts across the literary genres into English, working with leading professional translators. Groups will be limited to a maximum of 20 students to allow for individual attention, and places will be allocated on a strictly “first-come-first-served” basis.
The course will be taught in an all-day workshop environment using a variety of texts including non-fiction (essays, journalism, academic) and fiction (poetry, fantasy, children’s literature and crime writing etc.). There will be plenty of opportunities for networking with publishers, agents, Warwick staff and one another. Lunch time and evening events will be organised: more details to follow soon.
Attendees can choose to work in one language or to split their time between two languages by attending morning workshops in one language and afternoon workshops in the other language. To see timings of workshops and events download the programme (coming soon).
