For the first time ever, the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Long Island University will be offering a one-day Literary Translation Institute for both novices and experienced translators on June 16, 2017 that is, miraculously, both free and open to the public – the only requirement being that you register and submit work (except for the introductory workshop) by June 9. I recommend that you don’t wait until the last minute to register, since the afternoon workshops might fill up before that, though it may still be possible to attend the morning’s presentations. The faculty members for this program include Kaiama Glover, Gregary Racz, Christopher Winks, and me (Susan Bernofsky), and it’s being organized by poet Erica Hunt. For more information about the day’s activities (faculty presentations in the morning, workshops in the afternoon, lunch provided by LIU in between), please visit the LIU MFA Program’s Facebook page, where you’ll find application instructions etc. Please direct any questions to the MFA Program office. I hope to see you there!
