International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School

The International Literary Translation and Creative Writing Summer School 2016
To be delivered by the British Centre for Literary Translation at the University of East Anglia in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich – 24 to 30 July 2016.

 

The 2016 BCLT Summer School will take place at the University of East Anglia and at Dragon Hall, flagship building for Norwich UNESCO City of Literature. Run by the British Centre for Literary Translation in partnership with Writers’ Centre Norwich, the Summer School brings together writers and translators for an intensive, one-week, residential programme of hands-on translation and creative writing practice.

For language specific workshops, groups will work on a collaborative translation with the author in residence and workshop leader.

For translators working from any other languages to the above, there are two multilingual workshops, one for poetry and one for prose. These are designed for translators working from any language into English.

The programme will include creative writing sessions designed for literary translators as well as lectures and readings. All workshops are designed to encourage collaboration and peer learning in a small group setting. These will be delivered by Dr Cecilia Rossi, Sarah Bower and Anna Metcalfe.
