The Literary Translation Centre enables publishers and translators to come together, network and attend a variety of seminars on literary translation to further this art throughout the UK and abroad.
The seminar program covers a rich range of current subjects. Discover international literary landscapes such as the Middle East, China, and Japan; learn about children’s literature in translation; get ideas about funding both in the UK and Europe and find out how digital publishing may affect literary translation.
The speaker and panelist line-up is equally enticing, featuring people from all aspects of translation and publishing. Join Ann Branch, Head of Culture Programe and Actions unit at the European Commission, Persian writer Goli Taraghi, Amanda Hopkinson, former Director of the British Centre for Literary Translation, poet Sasha Dugdale, best-selling crime writer Boris Akunin, Russian broadcaster Marina Boroditskaya, David Karashima from The Nippon Foundation, and many more.
Whether you are a student, translator, writer, or publisher, we’re sure you will find something of interest at The Literary Translation Centre and we look forward to seeing you there in April.
