Free 2018 One-Day Literary Translation Institute at Long Island University in Brooklyn

The free one-day Literary Translation Institute held in 2017 in the MFA Program in Creative Writing at Long Island University in Brooklyn was such a success that we’re repeating the experiment this year. This day-long program to be held from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 9, 2018, and is suitable for both novices and experienced translators. The day will begin with presentations by faculty – Gregary Racz, Christopher Winks, and me (Susan Bernofsky) – in the morning, followed after lunch (provided!) by introductory-to-advanced workshops. You needn’t ever have translated anything at all to participate; the most important prerequisite is an interest in learning more about literary translation. For more information and to apply write to the MFA Program Office as far as possible in advance of the application deadline, which is Friday, June 1, 2018. I hope you’ll come talk translation with us!

    This is so exciting! I’m sad I missed it last year, but just reached out and can’t wait to apply. Thank you for providing us all with such good information through your blog.
